### Activity: Earth and Moon

• Each Group Demonstrate:

• Scale of Earth and Moon

• Scaled Distance between Moon and Earth

• Earth’s Diameter = 12,742 km

• Moon’s Diameter = 3,474 km

• Distance between = 384,400 km

## Activity:

Use the tectonic plate map and the globe ball to identify possible earthquake and volcanic sites in 3 different countries.

### Climate ACTIVITY

For your group’s assigned continent

• Select 2 climate regions

• Identify the factors that determine the climate for the 2 climate regions

### Sea-level Activity Directions

• As a group study the maps, choose several problems to address, discuss, make decisions and record reasoning.

2. Select a group member to present to class

ABATEMENT:fix the problem or make it less of a problem

ACCOMMODATION:learn to live with the problem and not try to change it

PREVENTION:work to prevent the problem from happening.
