Igneous/ (Meta)/ Volcano Standards Practice

9-11APPF

I can explain the intersection of my life style choices, societal choices and the rock cycle.
  1. List the common igneous rock uses. Elaborate on one use that you have had contact with.
  2. Use olivine to illustrate the often hidden nature of rock use in our society.
  3. In the summer of 1975, the government limited public access around Baker Lake (Mt. Baker). How was society served by this decision?
  4. In the spring of 1980, the government limited public access around Mt. St. Helens. How was society served by this decision?

9-11SYSB

I can describe igneous and metamorphic subsystems in the rock cycle.
  1. Our rock cycle uses the word 'igneous rock'. Define igneous rock.
  2. Our rock cycle uses the word 'cooling'. Discuss the range of conditions and locations encompassed by that word.
  3. Discuss the implications of igneous rock color and the rock's location on continental crust or oceanic crust.
  4. Describe the two properties of magma determined by magma composition and the impact that has on volcano structure and products.

9-11ES2D

I can identify and describe the uses for two igneous or metamorphic products in WA state.
  1. Identify and describe the uses for two igneous or metamorphic products in WA state.
  2. Describe the volcanic landform associated with the igneous products you have chosen and a specific location in WA state.

9-11PS2I

I can explain the role of temperature and pressure in rock formation. I can use temperature and pressure effects to identify rocks.
  1. Discuss igneous rock texture.
  2. Identify these rocks: andesite, diorite and porphyritic andesite.
  3. Compare and contrast hydrothermal ore deposits and igneous ore bodies.
