3. Final Jeopardy Jeopardy

4. What is granite? Earth's Interior for 200 Continental crust consists mainly of the rock ______________. Back to Jeopardy

5. What are geologists? Earth's Interior for 400 Scientists who study the forces that make and shape the planet Earth are called _____________________ Back to Jeopardy

6. What is the asthenosphere? Earth's Interior for 600 The _________________ is the part of the mantle that can bend like plastic. Back to Jeopardy

7. What is the crust? Earth's Interior for 800 The lithosphere includes all of the _____________ and part of the mantle. Back to Jeopardy

8. What are inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust? Earth's Interior for 1000 Name each of the layers of the Earth’s interior from innermost layer to outermost layer. Back to Jeopardy

9. What is sinks? Convection and the Mantle for 200 In the convection current of a pan of soup, the cooler, denser fluid ______ to the bottom. Back to Jeopardy

10. What is radiation? Convection and the Mantle for 400 The transfer of energy through space is called _________________. Back to Jeopardy

11. What is convection? Convection and the Mantle for 600 Heat transfer by the movement of a heated fluid is called _____________. Back to Jeopardy

12. What is density? Convection and the Mantle for 800 ________________ is a measure of how much mass there is in a volume of a substance. Back to Jeopardy

13. What is the heating and cooling of a fluid, changes in a fluid’s density, and the force of gravity combine to set convection currents in motion? Convection and the Mantle for 1000 This is a description of what sets convection currents into motion. Back to Jeopardy

14. Who is Alfred Wegener? Drifting Continents for 200 This is who first proposed the theory of continental drift. Back to Jeopardy

15. What is Pangaea? Drifting Continents for 400 The supercontinent that began to break apart a long time ago is called ___________. Back to Jeopardy

16. What is continental drift? Drifting Continents for 600 Fossils of tropical plants found on an island in the Arctic Ocean are evidence for Wegener’s hypothesis of _________________. Back to Jeopardy

17. What are continents? Drifting Continents for 800 Scientists rejected Wegener’s theory because he could not explain what force pushes or pulls __________________. Back to Jeopardy

18. What is scientists did not believe Wegener because he could not provide an explanation for the force that moves continents. Scientists now know that convection currents in the mantle cause the movement of plates on Earth’s surface, and those plates carry the continents with them? Drifting Continents for 1000 Describe what scientists now know about Earth that would have answered the scientists who rejected Wegener’s theory. Back to Jeopardy

19. What is subduction? Sea-Floor Spreading for 200 This is the process by which oceanic crust sinks beneath trenches. Back to Jeopardy

20. What is molten material? Sea-Floor Spreading for 400 This is what erupts through the valley of the mid-ocean ridge. Back to Jeopardy

21. What is sea-floor spreading? Sea-Floor Spreading for 600 The process that continually adds new material to the ocean floor is _____________________. Back to Jeopardy

22. What is the mid-ocean ridge? Sea-Floor Spreading for 800 As oceanic crust moves away from the ___________________, it cools and becomes more dense. Back to Jeopardy

23. In sea-floor spreading, molten material arises from the mantle and erupts through a mid-ocean ridge. The molten material then spreads out, pushing older rock to both sides of the ridge. This process continually adds new material to the ocean floor. Sea-Floor Spreading for 1000 Describe the process of sea-floor spreading. Back to Jeopardy

24. What is a fault? The Theory of Plate Tectonics for 200 A break in Earth’s crust where rocks have slipped past each other is called a ______________. Back to Jeopardy

25. What are plates? The Theory of Plate Tectonics for 400 Earth’s lithosphere is broken into separate sections called __________. Back to Jeopardy

26. What is transform? The Theory of Plate Tectonics for 600 A _____________ boundary is a place where two plates slip past each other. Back to Jeopardy

27. What is divergent? The Theory of Plate Tectonics for 800 A rift valley forms along a __________ boundary on land. Back to Jeopardy

28. What is the area where the crust was coming up is a divergent boundary? The area where the crust is going under the asthenosphere is a convergent boundary? The transform boundary is not represented in the model? The Theory of Plate Tectonics for 1000 In our model of sea-floor spreading, describe which type of plate boundary was found at each of the two areas of activity and tell which plate boundary was not represented in the model. Back to Jeopardy

29. What is in the mantle, just below the crust? Capture the Chapter for 200 This is where the lithosphere is located on a model of the Earth’s interior. Back to Jeopardy

30. What is the inner core is solid and the outer core is molten? Capture the Chapter for 400 This is the major difference between the inner core and the outer core. Back to Jeopardy

31. What is a rift valley? Capture the Chapter for 600 If a divergent boundary occurred on land, this is the name of the land form it would eventually create. Back to Jeopardy

32. Capture the Chapter for 800 These are the three different types of convergent boundaries that could occur on Earth’s surface. What are oceanic-oceanic, oceanic- continental, and continental-continental? Back to Jeopardy

33. Capture the Chapter for 1000 This is the reason the oceanic and continental crusts have different densities. What is oceanic crust is made of basalt and continental crust is made up of granite? Basalt is more dense than granite. Back to Jeopardy
