review stuff for test and see you at the beaty museum at 12:45

a reminder of the geo test on thursday. it will be all multiple choice and based on

   -the provincial exam study package, chapter 12 section
   -the geology study package
   -any of the older exams I have posted in the past, including those from old grade 12 provincials . Note that from those gr. 12 tests, the following kinds of questions only:  plate tectonics, Continental drift theory, volcanos, earthquakes, including the kinds of earthquake questions practiced in class.
   -any of the old grade 10 exam questions on geology.  A few of the more challenging questions would be questions from some of these old  provincials -  gr. 10 and 12 so you would gain a great advantage by poring through them.

you must be very familiar with key examples of geological features found at the correct places.  for example, Hawaii is an island system which has shield volcanos, is associated with hot spots.  African Rift Valley is a divergent boundary,  pacific north west is a subduction zone and nearby there is a trench, volcanos, earthquakes.  Japan is a volcanic island arc, etc.

Elizabeth asked for the provincial exam study package for chem.  here it is.  Good luck

See you at the Beaty museum. when you arrive, get into your groups.  and send the leader over with your field trip forms and payment and attendance of each group member.
