PORT ROYAL EARTHQUAKE
1
Ages: 10, 11, 12
Apply scientific inquiries or technological designs to examine the large-scale dynamic forces, events and processes that affect Earth's land and populations, demonstrating tectonic movements related to earthquakes, tsunamies and volcanoes, or researching past, current and projected Earth system phenomena that affect populations.

PORT ROYAL EARTHQUAKE
12.7.70
Ages: 12
Understand that lithospheric plates constantly move at rates of centimeters per year in response to movements in the mantle. Understand that major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building, result from these plate motions. Understand that over very longs periods of time (millions of years), old mountains wear down, but new ones arise from catastrophic volcanic and earthquake activity.

PORT ROYAL EARTHQUAKE
12.7.79
Ages: 12
Understand that the theory of plate tectonics explains the formation and movement of the earth's plates. Understand that the similar contours of the continents, seafloor spreading, and the location of frequent earthquakes and volcanoes provide evidence for plate tectonics.

PORT ROYAL EARTHQUAKE
12.7.80
Ages: 12
Understand that movements of the earth's continental and oceanic plates have affected the distribution of living things on Earth. Understand that major earthquake and volcanic activity can give rise to new mountain ranges, severing different species from each other, which from then on undergo independent lines of gradual change, each adapting to its own, new ecosystem.
