This PowerPoint was created in order to teach students about how plate tectonics leads to the formation of mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes. The PowerPoint includes various imagines, animations, and hyperlinks to videos online to reinforce concepts. (For some of the videos/animations to work, you may need a membership to the PBS website--it is free!) The following topics are presented in the file:
*Layers of the earth
*The Earth's plates
*Mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes
As a suggestion: While teaching about Pangaea I used resources from the following website and thought it might be helpful to share. (http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/about/edu/dynamicplanet/wegener/)
