4 Which of the following is an example of erosion? A. A volcano erupting B. Sand that is washed and carried away C. Pebbles settling in a stream D. Fragments turning into rock under the weight of several layers of silt

5 What makes up the strata of the sedimentary rock found at the bottom of the ocean? A. Sand B. Silt C. Remains of Dead Ocean Organisms D. All of the Above

6 Which of the following will cause magma to form? A. A decrease in pressure on rock B. A lowering of the temperature in rock C. Rock moving to the surface of the Earth D. A change in the composition in rock

7 Sandstone is a sedimentary rock. Which of the following steps of the rock cycle are most important in the formation of sandstone? A. Weathering and Erosion B. Heat and Pressure C. Deposition and Cementation A. Fragmentation and Metamorphism

8 The thickness of tectonic plates are best described in which of the following units of measure? A. Miles A. Meters A. Kilometers A. Both A & C

9 What makes up the Earth’s tectonic plates? A. Continents, oceans and upper mantle B. Continents and oceans, but none of the upper mantle C. Continents and the upper mantle, but oceans are not because they are made up of water D. Tectonic plates are made up of the asthenosphere

10 Because the Earth’s tectonic plates fit closely together and are constantly touching they are often referred to as what? A. An atlas B. An apartment building A. A jig-saw puzzle A. A road map

12 The tectonic plates divide up what physical layer of the Earth? A. The Crust A. The Mantle A. The Asthenosphere B. The Lithosphere

13 The outer core is described as which of the following? A. Liquid and Hot A. Solid and Hot A. Solid and Dense A. Liquid and Cool

14 Old and ancient layers of the Earth can be brought to the surface through what process? A. Deposition B. Metamorphism C. Uplift D. Eruption

15 The Earth’s crust is made up of both continental lithosphere and oceanic lithosphere. Of these two, which is denser? A. Continental Lithosphere B. Oceanic Lithosphere C. Both are the same density A. Not as dense as Mr. H’s eyebrows

16 What is the proper physical order of the Earth’s plates? A. Lithosphere, Mesosphere, Outer Core, Asthenosphere, Inner Core B. Mesosphere, Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Outer Core, Inner Core C. Crust, Mantle, Core D. Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Mesosphere, Outer Core, Inner Core

17 The deeper you head into the layers of the Earth which of the following occurs? A. Heat, pressure and density of the rock increases B. Heat and pressure decrease, but density of the rock increases C. The density of the rock decreases, but heat and pressure increases D. Heat, pressure and density of the rock decreases
