This fun smartboard lesson uses many colorful graphics as well as edible examples that students can relate to. The structure of the Earth is reviewed and following that plate tectonics is introduced. Convergent, divergent, and transform boundary formations and events are explored such as: earthquakes, mid-ocean ridges, San Andreas Fault, The Himalayas, and Sea Floor Spreading.
Smartboard is a licensed software for Notebook (Smarttech. If your computer does not open it..it is only because you need to download the notebook software in order for your computer to recognize it. If your school has a Smartboard, they more than likely have Notebook software.
