Why Does Sea Level Change? 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, including number of 45-minute class periods suggested; (8) summary questions (with answers); (9) extension activities; and (10) list of references. Two to three class periods are recommended to study possible explanations for large changes in sea level that occurred during and since Cretaceous time. Relationships between rock temperatures and volumes that rocks occupy are examined. Applications of this knowledge (and knowledge of sea-floor spreading) are used to explain sea level changes by gathering data from a model of sea-floor spreading constructed of blocks on a paper grid.
