Earth Science and Biology Webquest

1. Plate Tectonics and resulting land forms.

  • Objective: I will be able to describe the resulting landforms at different tectonic plate boundaries.

  • Go to the website labeled plate tectonics. Follow the instructions at the top of the page. (Ex. pick a direction for plate 1 to move)
  • Click: See plates move over time. Choose your time period.
  • Use the legend in the bottom left hand corner to describe what landforms are created and what type of plate activity there is (ex. earthquakes)

2. More plate tectonics

Objective: I will be able to identify the different types of tectonic plate boundaries.

  • Use this website to review the types of plate boundaries.

3. Infectious Diseases

  • Objective: I will be able to track how a communicable disease travels through a population.

  • Use this website to observe how an infectious disease can travel through a population.
  • Use the key in the upper left hand corner to track the spread of the communicable disease. Be sure to record your observations as you go along.

4. Mitosis and Meiosis- Cell reproduction

  • Objective: I will be able to compare and contrast mitosis and meiosis.

  • Use this website to observe the steps in Mitosis.
  • Use this website to observe the steps in Meiosis
