NGSS aligned video lesson and activity handout for getting students to map volcanoes and earthquakes using latitudes and longitudes. Have students determine which places are earthquake risky and earthquake safe. Develop the evidence for plate tectonics.
Includes video links to YouTube videos, student hand out and answer key.
**HS-ESS1-5.** Evaluate evidence of the past and current movements of continental and oceanic crust and the theory of plate tectonics to explain the ages of crustal rocks.
**MS-ESS2-2.** Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.
**MS-ESS3-2.** Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects
