Lithosphere Video Posted in Discovery Ed

Dear Parents,

We’ll be moving into a study of the lithosphere at the end of this week. You can find the list of essential outcomes for our unit linked at the bottom of this email. One of the first key concepts that we will be studying is that the earth’s crust is made from a series of tectonic plates that are constantly moving.

To study this point, we’ll be watching a video called Continents Adrift that is available in Discovery Education. I’ve assigned to all of your kids — so they should be able to find it easily in the “My Assignments” tab after signing into Discovery Ed. You can find the viewing guide for this task linked below as well.

Here is another video about the earth’s continental plates that we’ll be reviewing:

Hope this helps,
