Introduction: Why study earth? Earth Systems describe the natural functioning of the physical and biological components of the Earth and human activities that interact with these components. There are several reasons why we need to study earth. Find out why here. 1.2 Why Study Earth?The rock cycle is the inward and outward process of how rock is created, destroyed, or altered. Find out more here: Three Types of rocks and the Rock CyclePlate Tectonics is describe the movement of seven large and small land masses over millions of years. Earth is changing due to convection of the soft, hot rocks in the core of the Earth. Learn more about plate tectonics here: There are Three Kinds of Plate Tectonic BoundariesEarthquakes are a release of energy in the lithosphere of the earth that causes seismic waves to occur. Go to Caltech website to learn more about Earthquakes. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/legacy/pla…Question/Phenomenon What is the relationship between the rock cycle, plate tectonics and earthquakesPurposeUsing no more than two or three sentences, state the purpose of conducting the experiment. This purpose should imply an interesting observation and a query that the experiment will attempt to resolve.How do plate tectonics contribute to the rock cycle? How do plate boundaries contribute to earthquakes?ClaimIn one or two sentences, give an educated guess as to what you think the answer to your query will be. What do you think the results of the experiment will show? MaterialsTextbook readings, website research.MethodsThis section should summarize the procedure(s) used in the experiment. It should include sufficient detail so that one could repeat the experiment by following your description of theprocedure.EvidenceThe results section is the record of your observations from the experiment. The date (results) should be organized and clearly presented in the form of written qualitative statement, illustration, drawings, graphs, and/or tables. Consider including drawings of various plate boundaries and/or the rock cycle.ReasoningThis section includes an interpretation of the results and describes how your data compares with expected norms and how it compares to your hypothesis. Do not repeat data in this section. This section also includes a critical analysis of the experimental results, gives explanations of any errors that may have occurred.ReferencesInclude additional resources you used other than those provided.Format provided by Cecil H.
