This resource was created to help middle school students gain confidence and comfort in reading and dissecting plate tectonic maps. There are three separate maps with questions. Each handout has an answer key. With each map, students are asked to count the number of plates, find plates, decipher direction, speed, or identify land features created by tectonic movement.

Use these for classwork, homework, or leave with a sub. This is a print-and-go resource. Please see preview.
