This simple and effective assignment is ready for use (with almost no teacher prep involved!).
Aided by an informative text, your students will “jigsaw” together a set of descriptors and pictures describing “Hawaii Geology”. The concept covers “hot spots”, mantle plumes, sea-mounts, and tectonic plate movement.
The fully constructed concept poster is a visual description of Hawaii Geology as a collective of (fully colored) pictures and descriptions of each stage.
This assignment is unmatched as tool for visually structuring the whole concept and moving its understanding into long term memory (and it is great for all learners!).
