Product Description
This is an interactive simulation of a paper lab which uses the concept of Hot Spots to deduce tectonic plate movements (citation within the file as a weblink). The activities are engaging. The science is sound. Students cover data acquisition, measurement, graphing, and draw conclusions on how fast the tectonic plate that Hawaiian Islands sit on it is traveling.

Students run through the lab in its entirety.

The file can be projected as a class activity but if you have access to a computer lab, it's ideally suited for students to run the simulation on their own.

Once properly protected (instructions on how to do that are in a separate file in my store called, "Kiosk Instructions".), double-clicking the file icon, starts the kiosk... Students run through the simulation, calling the teacher over over only when;
1. They run into a technical glitch...
2. They are confused on the content...
3. They're done!

As with all my kiosks, #3 is easy and particularly fun for me. I insert a picture of my family on the last slide. My instructions are phrases like, "Go show me the picture of my son!" You are welcome to keep them there. You can also easily substitute your own pics.

Touch screens are particularly fun with these kiosks.
Enjoy!
