2 Answer: Question: Volcanoes Plate Tectonics History Plate Tectonics Causes Earthquake Causes Earthquake Locations Inside the Earth Jeopardy

3 Answer: Question: Volcanoes A gap in the Earth that emits gasses, lava, and ash. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a volcano?

4 Answer: Question: Volcanoes Shield Volcanoes, Cinder Cone Volcanoes, or Composite Volcanoes. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are the three main types of volcanoes?

5 Answer: Question: Volcanoes Convergent boundaries, divergent boundaries, and hot spots. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! Where do volcanoes form?

6 Answer: Question: Volcanoes The gently sloped volcano that forms when basaltic lava erupts quietly and spreads out in flat layers. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a shield volcano?

7 Answer: Question: Volcanoes Magma pushes plates apart and then builds up in between the plates, forming a volcano. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! How do volcanoes form at divergent boundaries?

8 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonics History -100 The man who hypothesized seafloor spreading. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! Who is Harry Hess?

9 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonics History The German meteorologist who hypothesized the Continental Drift Theory. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! Who is Alfred Wegner?

10 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonics History The idea that the plates spread when hot, light material in the mantle pushes through the crust under oceans, pushes the plates apart, and cools to become a new part of the ocean floor. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is seafloor spreading?

11 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonics History The idea that the continents have moved from a central supercontinent to their current locations. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the Continental Drift Theory?

12 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonics History Scientists in 1968 found that rocks were younger in the middle of a mid-ocean ridge. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the evidence of seafloor spreading?

13 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonic Causes Convergent, divergent, and transform. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are the three main types of plate boundaries?

14 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonic Causes The heating, rising, cooling, and sinking of the liquid in the mantle, that flows in a circle, can move the tectonic plates above the mantle, and cause them to push into each other. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are the effects of convection currents on the tectonic plates?

15 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonic Causes Two continental plates come together and create mountains, two oceanic plates come together and create a volcano, or a continental plate and an oceanic plate come together and create a volcano. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What happens at convergent boundaries?

16 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonic Causes The two plates slide past each other. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What happens at transform boundaries?

17 Answer: Question: Plate Tectonic Causes The two plates are pushed apart. Exposed magma between them may become a volcano. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What happens at divergent boundaries?

18 Answer: Question: Earthquake Causes The surfaces rocks move along when they break. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a fault?

19 Answer: Question: Earthquake Causes Normal faults, reverse faults, and strike-slip faults. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are the three main types of faults?

20 Answer: Question: Earthquake Causes A wave of vibration and energy caused by an earthquake. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a seismic wave?

21 Reveal the Answer Return to Jeopardy! Daily Double! Please place your wager in the category Earthquake Causes

22 Answer: Question: Daily Double! The seismic wave in which the energy moves from side to side at angles perpendicular to the wave. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a secondary wave?

23 Answer: Question: Earthquake Causes When rock above the fault line is pushed up over the other rock layer. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a reverse fault?

24 Answer: Question: Earthquake Locations A sudden movement of the Earth’s crust at a fault line, which causes a series of vibrations. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is an earthquake?

25 Answer: Question: Earthquake Locations The scale used to measure the amount of energy that is released during an earthquake. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the Richter Scale?

26 Answer: Question: Earthquake Locations The scale that measures the amount of damage that an earthquake causes. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the Mercalli Intensity Scale?

27 Answer: Question: Earthquake Locations When the difference between the primary wave and the secondary wave is measured from at least three seismic stations to calculate the epicenter of an earthquake. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is triangulation?

28 Answer: Question: Earthquake Locations The tool that is used at seismic stations to measure the amounts vibrations in the earth. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is a seismograph?

29 Answer: Question: Inside the Earth The crust, lithosphere, asthenosphere, mantle, and core. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are the five main layers in the Earth?

30 Answer: Question: Inside the Earth The extremely dense and hot central part of the Earth. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the core?

31 Answer: Question: Inside the Earth The cycle where parts of the mantle near the crust cool, sink, warm near the core, rise, and cool near the crust again. This causes the movement of Earth’s plates. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What are convection currents?

32 Answer: Question: Inside the Earth The layer of the Earth that is made up of the crust and part of the upper mantle. This means the “stone” layer, and is the layer that the plates are made up of. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the lithosphere?

33 Answer: Question: Inside the Earth The plastic-like layer of Earth below the lithosphere that is a part of the upper mantle. Exit GameReturn to Jeopardy! What is the asthenosphere?
