I used this movie viewing guide for the excellent History Channel's How the Earth Was Made episode on the Deepest Places on Earth. This worksheet guides students on how scientists understanding of the crust developed, and what discoveries helped contribute to the theory of plate tectonics.

Students will draw conclusions, determine how the theory of plate tectonics developed, and discover the steps that were taken to understand the crust/plates. Students will fill in the blank, and write open-ended complete sentence answers throughout the 20 question video guide that accompanies the excellent History Channel Documentary.

This movie guide and questioning is the perfect supplement to any Plate Tectonics unit.

Please also find a link in the footer of the PDF that will allow you to make a copy of the original doc in your own Google Drive to edit as you see fit.

NGSSMS-ESS2-1
Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process. Emphasis is on the processes of melting, crystallization, weathering, deformation, and sedimentation, which act together to form minerals and rocks through the cycling of Earth’s materials. Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals.
NGSSMS-ESS2-2
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
NGSSMS-ESS2-3
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches). Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.
