Igneous/ (Meta)/ Volcano Standards Practice
9-11APPFI can explain the intersection of my life style choices, societal choices and the rock cycle.
- List the common igneous rock uses. Elaborate on one use that you have had contact with.
- Use olivine to illustrate the often hidden nature of rock use in our society.
- In the summer of 1975, the government limited public access around Baker Lake (Mt. Baker). How was society served by this decision?
- In the spring of 1980, the government limited public access around Mt. St. Helens. How was society served by this decision?
9-11SYSBI can describe igneous and metamorphic subsystems in the rock cycle.
- Our rock cycle uses the word 'igneous rock'. Define igneous rock.
- Our rock cycle uses the word 'cooling'. Discuss the range of conditions and locations encompassed by that word.
- Discuss the implications of igneous rock color and the rock's location on continental crust or oceanic crust.
- Describe the two properties of magma determined by magma composition and the impact that has on volcano structure and products.
9-11ES2DI can identify and describe the uses for two igneous or metamorphic products in WA state.
- Identify and describe the uses for two igneous or metamorphic products in WA state.
- Describe the volcanic landform associated with the igneous products you have chosen and a specific location in WA state.
9-11PS2II can explain the role of temperature and pressure in rock formation. I can use temperature and pressure effects to identify rocks.
- Discuss igneous rock texture.
- Identify these rocks: andesite, diorite and porphyritic andesite.
- Compare and contrast hydrothermal ore deposits and igneous ore bodies.
