Science Worksheets and Study Guides Sixth Grade. Plate Tectonics

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Michigan Standards

MI.CC.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Craft and Structure
RST.6-8.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
MI.E. Earth Science
E.SE. Solid Earth: Develop an understanding of the properties of earth materials and how those properties make materials useful. Understand gradual and rapid changes in earth materials and features of the surface of Earth. Understand magnetic properties of Earth.
E.SE.M.5. Plate Tectonics- The lithospheric plates of the Earth constantly move, resulting in major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building.
E.SE.06.51. Explain plate tectonic movement and how the lithospheric plates move centimeters each year.
E.SE.06.53. Describe layers of the Earth as a lithosphere (crust and upper mantle), convecting mantle, and dense metallic core.
E.ST. Earth in Space and Time: Develop an understanding that the sun is the central and largest body in the solar system and that Earth and other objects in the sky move in a regular and predictable motion around the sun. Understand that those motions explain the day, year, moon phases, eclipses and the appearance of motion of objects across the sky. Understand that gravity is the force that keeps the planets in orbit around the sun and governs motion in the solar system. Develop an understanding that fossils and layers of Earth provide evidence of the history of Earth's life forms, changes over long periods of time, and theories regarding Earth's history and continental drift.
E.ST.M.4. Geologic Time- Earth processes seen today (erosion, mountain building, and glacier movement) make possible the measurement of geologic time through methods such as observing rock sequences and using fossils to correlate the sequences at various locations.
E.ST.06.42. Describe how fossils provide important evidence of how life and environmental conditions have changed.
