7E. analyzes and explains large scale dynamic forces, events, and processes that affect the Earth's land, water and atmospheric systems."

Third PowerPoint lesson in the unit on "Plate Tectonics." This lesson combines the evidence for seafloor spreading and continental drift into one theory - Plate Tectonics.
A class activity (suggested) is included at the end of each Earth/Space lesson and a 20-question interactive quiz/review at kahoot.it is also included as a link in the last slide. A separate student note guide (worksheet) is available for each lesson as well.
