Lab #6 in my lab series.
NOTE: This lab requires access to a computer.
Students use the Phet Plate Tectonics Simulation to describe the differences between continental and oceanic crust, to identify and describe the three types of plate boundaries, and to describe the geologic features created by each type of plate boundary.
I have had great success with this lab. My students enjoyed using the simulation and by having them draw time-lapse sketches of plate interactions they retained much of the content knowledge.
