More information on each resource:
- Plate Tectonics Interactive Notebook
This product contains interactive cut and paste learning material for students to create an organized science interactive notebook.
Topics covered in this unit include: Pangaea, Alfred Wegener, continental drift, tectonic plates, Ring of Fire, geologists, volcanoes, continental plate, oceanic plate, ocean trenches, ridge, geologists, seismic waves, density, layers of the earth, convection currents, subduction
-Plate Tectonics Interactive PowerPoint
This teaching resource is quite the virtual experience! This Plate Tectonics Interactive PowerPoint can be used as a powerful classroom presentation or students can click their way through it on individual computers.
-Plate Tectonics STEM Challenge
There are 2 Plate Tectonic STEM Challenges in this pack. Each STEM Challenge has detailed directions, photo examples, a list of materials needed, prediction section, brainstorming section, trials 1, 2, & 3, final results section with drawings, and a reflection section.
The STEM Challenges include:
1. Seismograph Challenge!
Using a list of supplies, students must design a seismograph that can record movement or shaking. The seismograph must have a base, a hanging weight, and a frame. The paper that the seismic waves are recorded on must be able to be pulled through the device so new data can be recorded. The P and S waves must be labeled in their data. Students have 2 hours to complete this challenge. If they test their seismograph and it does not work properly, they have two more attempts to fix their design. (Testing time does not count towards the two hour time limit)
2. Earthquake-Resistant Bridge Challenge! Using a list of supplies, students must construct a bridge that can withstand a major earthquake. The structure must be flexible enough so it can absorb the shaking, but not fall apart. The bridge must have a base made up of cups that can be shaken to show its flexibility. The bridge cannot be longer than 20 inches. Students have 2 hours to complete this challenge. If they test their bridge and it falls apart, they have two more attempts to fix their design. (Testing time does not count towards the two hour time limit) After all the groups have created their bridges, they must prove how their design is the most earthquake-resistant. The group with the best design wins the challenge!
-Plate Tectonics Google Classroom Student Projects
This product contains 2 digital projects that students can complete using Google Slides! This resource has a brochure project and an info-graphic / poster project.
Each student-centered project has a sample project and detailed project instructions for the students.
Info-graphic / Poster Project
Using a list of topics, student choose what they would like to research related to plate tectonics. All of the elements in the info-graphic must be organized, clearly visible, and well placed. Creativity with color and photos is a must! **More instructions found in the resource
Using a template, students design an informational brochure that highlights important facts and topics about plate tectonics.
