Product Description
This is a 50 slide powerpoint that covers the development of the theory of continental drift and plate tectonics. It discusses Wegner's evidence, sea floor mapping during WWII, the concept of sea floor spreading, and then moves into the discovery of the earth's plates and a discussion about convergent, divergent, and transform boundaries. Many of the slides have links to website animations or flash interactives - students will be able to see plate boundaries as earthquakes are mapped, there are links to animations to show types of boundaries, and links to animations for sea floor spreading and subduction. There is also a youtube link to an 8 minute Bill Nye "Greatest Discoveries" segment that discusses these topics. At the end of the presentation, there is a 9 question "Jeopardy ®" style fact review and an "Exit Slip" with three higher-order type questions.

Do you find your students turn off their brain and just copy when you use powerpoints? I've found the best way to combat this phenomena is to have the main ideas come in one at a time. For that reason, you will find that my slides have simple, quick powerpoint "actions" so that each big idea comes up when you want it to, with a simple mouse click or tap on your interactive white board. None of the actions are over-powering or distracting so your lesson presents itself in a way that students will focus on the content.

Note: The preview file is several slides with powerpoint animations and links intact; however, the review game will not work correctly as many of the slides have been removed.
