Presentation Transcript

In which type of rock are fossils most likely to be found?

Igneous intrusive

Igneous extrusive



C. Sedimentary

If visiting a recently erupted volcano, what type of rock samples would you find?

Clastic Sedimentary

Nonfoliated Metamorphic

Chemically formed Sedimentary

Extrusive Igneous

D. Extrusive Igneous Rock

Which of the following is a Metamorphic Rock?





D. Marble

What effect does acid rain have on limestone buildings?

Dissolve the limestone

Changes it to granite

Changes the acidity of it

Causes buildup of more limestone

Dissolves the limestone

A landslide is an example of erosion caused by


Running water.

The movement of a glacier.


D. Gravity

In Earth’s crust, what type of rock is found under the Ocean?

Only granite

Only basalt

Granite on top; basalt underneath

Basalt on top; granite underneath

B. Only Basalt

The thickest layer of the Earth is the



Outer Core.

Inner Core.

B. Mantle

How does the density of material in Earth’s layers change with depth?

increases with depth

decreases with depth

Does not change with depth

Increases, then decreases

A. Density increases with depth

Identify the layers of the Earth from surface to interior?

A.Outer Core, Inner Core, Mantle, Crust

B.Crust, Inner Core, Outer Core, Mantle

C.Crust, Mantle, Outer Core, Inner Core

D.Crust, Mantle, Inner Core, Outer Core

C. Crust, Mantle, Outer Core, Inner Core

Water covers what percent of Earth’s surface?





C. 70%

What happens to a plant soon after it dies?

Becomes hard & forms rock.

Breaks down & becomes part of the soil

Turns black & becomes coal.

Becomes soft and forms clay.

B. Breaks down/ becomes part of the soil

The jet stream has a great impact on changing weather conditions in an area because:

Does not change seasons.

Keeps atmosphere full of moisture.

Is a determinant of major air movements.

Speeds up evaporation following precipitation.

C. Is a determinant of major air movements

The Jet Stream brings moisture from Gulf, Cold comes from the North & warm air is brought in by the Atlantic. These cause YOUR weather patterns!!!!!!

What is MAINLY responsible for the unequal heat of Earth’s surface?

Distance of Sun from different parts of Earth

The angle sunshine strikes Earth

Material of Earth’s surface

Changes in amount of energy the sun puts out

B. Angle of Sunshine striking the Earth

What causes places in the Mid Ocean Ridge to spread apart?

2 tectonic plates crashing into each other

One tectonic plate being pushed under another

Two tectonic plates moving alongside each other

Two tectonic plates moving away from each other

D. Two Tectonic Plates moving away from one another

Convergent Boundary: Collide=Mountains

Divergent Boundary: Diverge= Rifts

Transform Boundary: Move past each other= Earthquakes

Which natural force creates surface ocean currents?





D. Wind

How are the Earth, Sun, & Moon aligned during a Solar Eclipse?

  • A. Sun, Moon, Earth

  • B. Sun, Earth, Moon

  • C. Earth, Sun, Moon

  • D. Moon has nothing to do with Solar Eclipse

  • A.Sun, Moon, Earth

What forces causes tides?





B. Gravity (Earth, Moon & Sun)

Which layer of Earth’s atmosphere is where our weather occurs?





A. Troposphere

Which type of eclipse occurs whenever the Moon passes through Earth’s shadow?





  • C. Lunar

What phase must the moon be in to allow for a Lunar Eclipse?

  • A. New

  • B. Full

  • C. First Quarter

  • D. Waxing Gibbous

B. Full Moon ONLY!!

Earth rotates from

A. North to South

B. South to North.

C. East to West

D. West to East

D. West to East

The Sun goes down on the East Coast first…

What is the purpose of using terraces on hillsides?

A. To retain water and soil

B. To increase Wind Erosion

C. To keep roots from spreading

D. Provides protection for animals

  • A. To retain water and soil

    • This keeps roots in place

    • Cuts down on erosion

What is the name of the Volcanic and Earthquake region found in the Pacific Ocean?

  • Pangaea

  • Ring of Fire

  • Mid-Ocean Ridge

  • Gulf Stream

B. Ring of Fire

Clouds form when water vapor in the air

  • Condenses around dust particles

  • Rises and disappears

  • Rises too high to fall back

  • Encounters a warm front

  • Condense around dust particles (vapor to liquid)

    Evaporation: liquid to vapor (boil/melt)

The Sun’s energy reaches Earth through

  • Evaporation

  • Condensation

  • Radiation

  • Wind

C. Radiation – Heat transfer through open airConduction: thru touchConvection: thru fluids ONLY

The development of soil begins when

  • once-living things begin to decay

  • Rock begins to erode.

  • Rock beings to weather

  • When plants begin to grow

C. Rock begins to weather

What was Wegner’s theory of Continental Drift?

All continents were “born” at different times.

All continents were once a single landmass & have drifted apart

All continents were once 3 major landmasses

None of the above.

B. Continents were once ONE landmass and have since drifted apart

Evidence: Tropical Fossils found in ice

Mesasouraus found on two continents

Applachian Mountains match other mountains

Tropical fossils found in Andes Mountains

S. America/Africa coastline

What type of storm produces the strongest winds?





D. Tornadoes produce the strongest winds of any Storm

Winds must reach what mph/kmh before a tropical storm is considered a hurricane?

45 mph/90 kmh

74 mph/119 kmh

100 mph/150 kmh

A tropical storm can not turn into a hurricane.

B. 74 mph or 119 kmh

A Comets tail always:

  • Points toward the Earth
