2 Instructions for using this template. Remember this is Jeopardy, so where I have written “Answer” this is the prompt the students will see, and where I have “Question” should be the student’s response. To enter your questions and answers, click once on the text on the slide, then highlight and just type over what’s there to replace it. If you hit Delete or Backspace, it sometimes makes the text box disappear. When clicking on the slide to move to the next appropriate slide, be sure you see the hand, not the arrow. (If you put your cursor over a text box, it will be an arrow and WILL NOT take you to the right location.)

3 Choose a category. You will be given the answer. You must give the correct question. Click to begin.

5 Catch my Drift Spread it Around Inside our Planet It’s Your Fault Mixed Bag 10 Point 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 10 Point 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points All Cracked Up

6 The name of the German Meteorologist that Developed the theory of Continental Drift

7 Alfred Wegener

8 The super continent that existed mya

9 Pangaea

10 These two continents seem to fit together like a puzzle

11 South America and Africa

12 Small freshwater reptile found on South America and Africa that helped support continental drift

13 Mesosaurus

14 This tropical plant was found on several continents which helped support continental drift

15 Glossopteris

16 The name of the naval officer/scientist that came up with the theory of how the continents were moving

17 Harry Hess

18 Was proven that the rocks near this point were younger than rocks farther away from this point

19 A ridge

20 This research vessel found evidence that helped support the idea that the seafloor was spreading apart

21 The Glomar Challenger

22 By studying the iron in the rocks of the ocean floor scientists found that this unusual phenomenon was happening

23 The Earth’s magnetic north pole is flipping periodically

24 Tiny oceanic plate subducting under North American plate feeding Mt. St. Helens

25 Juan De Fuca

26 The surface of the Earth is broken up into several of these.

27 Plates/Tectonic Plates

28 The Himalayas are being formed due to this type of boundary

29 Convergent Boundary

30 Huge divergent boundary located in the Atlantic Ocean

31 The Mid-Atlantic Ridge

32 The San Andreas Fault line is located at this type of boundary

33 Transform Boundary

34 The area where one plates is being pushed under another plate

35 Subduction Zone

36 The molten liquid portion of the Earth’s interior

37 The Outer Core

38 Portion of the Earth that consists of the Earth’s outer crust and upper mantle

39 The Lithosphere

40 When an ocean plate and continental plate collide, this plate will subduct because it is denser

41 Ocean Plate

42 Boundary between the lower mantle and outer core

43 Guttenberg Discontinuity

44 The reason why it is so hot deep within the Earth’s mantle

45 Radioactive Elements

46 When rocks fracture or break, this is formed

47 A Fault

48 This type of forces squeezes Rocks together

49 Compression

50 At a strike-slip fault the force acting on the rock is a ____________force

51 Shear

52 The San Andreas fault line is an example of this fault

53 A strike-slip fault

54 Area where one plate is subducting under another plate is called an oceanic__________.

55 Trench

56 Formed when two ocean plates collide

57 Trench and Volcanic Islands

58 Wegener believed the continents were moving apart because of this

59 Spinning of Earth on its axis

60 Mt. St. Helens was formed due to this type of boundary

61 Convergent Boundary

62 At a divergent boundary, magma rises to the surface because of

63 Change in pressure

64 This scientist said the continents are plowing through the ocean floors

65 Alfred Wegener

66 Make your wager

67 Convection currents within the Earth’s mantle

68 The leading theory behind why the plates are moving Final Jeopardy
