Geologic events, such as volcanic activity, play an important role in forming many of our valuable resources, such as fossil fuel, lead, copper, and gold. For example, fig. 15.21 on p. 476 of the textbook shows the role of basaltic magma in forming one of the most valuable ores to our civilization, chromium. Select an important ore mined in your state or region, and discuss how geologic events played a role in forming this ore. Discuss the importance of this ore in the economy of your selected area and the United States as a whole.

Your younger brother is in 5th grade. He comes home and tells you to look at an animation his teacher showed him in geology class.

Review the Continents of the Past animation on the student Web site.

After viewing the animation, your brother has a look of disbelief on his face, “C’mon, really? Our whole continent moves? That’s bogus!” Instead of blowing him off like you usually do, you decide to sit down and educate him about plate tectonics. First, you give him an overview about two historical figures that contributed to the plate tectonic theory. Then, you decide to show him how the plates move by boiling a pot of water (shown on p. 108) and relating it to mantle convection and plate movement.
