When a Piece of a Continent Breaks Off. Crustal Evolution Education Project. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Investigation.
Stoever, Edward C., Jr.
Crustal Evolution Education Project (CEEP) modules were designed to: (1) provide students with the methods and results of continuing investigations into the composition, history, and processes of the earth's crust and the application of this knowledge to man's activities and (2) to be used by teachers with little or no previous background in the modern theories of sea-floor spreading, continental drift, and plate tectonics. Each module consists of two booklets: a teacher's guide and student investigation. The teacher's guide contains all of the information present in the student investigation booklet as well as: (1) a general introduction; (2) prerequisite student background; (3) objectives; (4) list of required materials; (5) background information; (6) suggested approach; (7) procedure, recommending two 45-minute class periods for this module; (8) summary questions (with answers); (9) extension activities; and (10) list of references. In these activities on microcontinental tectonics, students duplicate the rotation of some microcontinents, determine the original location of microclimates by studying their paleomagnetism (declination and inclination), and find out why Baja, California will someday be a microcontinent like Madagascar and New Zealand.
