Science, level: Middle
Posted Wed Dec 9 05:09:37 PST 1998 by Mike at Central (MiSoJo@aol.com).
Centraol Middle School, Waterloo, Iowa
Concepts Taught: Plate tetonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes

Science Internet Project

Members: ______________________________________

Topics: Plate Tectonics
Earthquake Faults
Types of Volcanoes

COMPUTER EXPECTATIONS ARE:
1) All students will participate in the searches.
2) A written list of duties for each student is required
after the first class meeting. Who will do each job.
This list is required in team packet.
3) Be patient with the members of your group, the class
the computer, the time restrictions, and me. We all
have a common goal.
4) COMPUTER USE WILL BE IN INTERVALS AS BEST WE CAN. LISTEN FOR THE TIMER.

5) Do not be at the computer if your group is not
assigned that time.
6) Immature behavior at the computer will result in loss
of computer time with the first problem and removal
from the computer on the second. (Individual)
7) Use of any web site other than those listed will
mean loss of computer time for all.

WORK COMPLETED IN THE GROUP WILL INCLUDE:
1) Each group of 9 will be divided into 3 sub-groups
of 3 students each.
2) Every student will participate in the internet searches.
3) Materials found by the searches will be recorded as
notes on the sheets provided.
4) Graphic materials found on the searches will be
used as examples for posters. They will not be just
printed and turned in.
5) Materials should not be brought from home for this
project.
6) Team work is the key. All material, graphics, and
oral presentations will be shared by all.
7) Grading will be by written material presented, working as a team, and oral presentation.

8) All note material and a finished written report
will be expected to be turned in at the completion
of this project.

OUTCOMES OF THE PROJECT WILL BE:
1) A report written by the members will be turned in.
2) Posters explaining Plate Tectonics will be created.
3) An oral presentation involving all group members
will be made.
4) Group members will answer questions from the
class.


PROCEDURE FOR PROJECT:
1) Each member record their job for the project.
2) Organize project outline. List the topics covered
in the report
3) Web Sites are all "book marked" and ready to use.
Get to them quickly during your time. Look for
information for topics listed in #2. Record on the
sheets provided. Do not just copy, paraphrase.
Read, read, read, and paraphrase, paraphrase!!!
4) Make sure to save all note and graphic material in
your packet. Save everything.
5) Create all posters on notebook paper before
making a final copy. Make a rough copy first.
6) When not using the computer, rewrite notes, work
on visuals, research in the book, practice oral
materials. Keep working in a positive way.

AGAIN, YOU ARE TO LEARN ABOUT PLATE TECTONICS, EARTHQUAKES, AND VOLCANOES, PLUS HOW THE INTERNET CAN DO THIS FOR US AND TO HAVE FUN AT THE SAME TIME.
