This is a lesson plan with printable worksheet for modeling the movement of earth's plates. Lesson instructions are included, and the students LOVE to eat the earth's crust and mantle after you finish.
The printable worksheet provides them with a visual reminder of their learning. I consistently find that my students remember this lesson as one of their favorites. You can adjust the level of the vocabulary to your students, making this a fun lesson for 2nd graders and 6th graders alike.
