PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this mapping activity, students are directed to use their knowledge of plate boundaries and types of lithosphere (continental and oceanic) to "map" what our future (very distant future!) world might look like. Using a labeled map and current plate speeds, students work to cut out each plate, move it a scaled amount in an indicated direction, and tape it down in it's new location. This requires a fair amount of preparation and colored copies, but much of it can be used year after year once made and laminated.
