Pop-up book Project

Due Date: June 14, 2017


This project will allow you to explore and display information you have collected in an interesting and interactive way. Your book should be colourful, detailed, organized, and complete. You may work in pairs or by yourself for this project.  If in pairs you and your partner will need to choose a different topic (for example, if one of you chooses plate tectonics, the other will choose a different topic like rock types). Together you will need to create one cover page for your book, but remember only you will be responsible for your information pages. You will receive your own individual mark on this project based on the effort you put forth in your information pages.


Your full page spread will need to:

       Provide detailed information about your topic (including at least two appropriate subtopics of your choosing)

       Have an organized layout for your information and images.

       Include a minimum of three different interactive parts (pop-ups).

       Include at least four text features (as discussed in class).

       Working with your partner, you will need to create an inviting Book cover that indicates what your book is about.


Choose a topic that will help you demonstrate your understanding of one of the following outcomes: (Please circle the one you end up choosing)


1.      Analyze and compare data to determine patterns and trends on some catastrophic events that occur on or near Earth's surface.

(Volcano locations, Earthquake locations and warning signs, etc…)


2.      Describe theories from the past to present about plate tectonics.

(Pangea, types of plate boundaries, how the plates move, etc…)


3.      Organize a chronological model or geological time scale of major events in Earth's history.

(Major events of your choosing, in order. This would include Eras, Periods, Ages, etc… and significant events, organisms present then, etc...)


4.      Explore and describe the composition of Earth's crust.

(From the Core up to the Lithosphere, including comparisons between oceanic and continental crust, rock composition in Canada, etc…)


5.      Investigate and explain various ways in which rocks can be weathered and explain the rock cycle.

(This would include information about subduction zones, rock formation, etc…)
