Product Description
This concept map allows students to create connections between types of tectonic plate movements and the geographical features that result.
It is aligned to teaching the NGSS Disciplinary Core Idea ESS2.B, which is taught at Grade 4, Middle School, and High School levels.
Grade 4- "Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions- The locations of mountain ranges, deep ocean trenches, ocean floor structures, earthquakes, and volcanoes occur in patterns. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur in bands that are often along the boundaries between continents and oceans. Major mountain chains form inside continents or near their edges.” (4-ESS2-2) (NGSS Lead States, 2013)
Middle School- “Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions- Maps can help locate the different land and water features areas of Earth. Maps of ancient land and water patterns, based on investigations of rocks and fossils, make clear how Earth’s plates have moved great distances, collided, and spread apart." (MS-ESS2-3) (NGSS Lead States, 2013)
High School- “ESS2.B: Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions- Plate tectonics is the unifying theory that explains the past and current movements of the rocks at Earth’s surface and provides a framework for understanding its geologic history. Plate movements are responsible for most continental and ocean-floor features and for the distribution of most rocks and minerals within Earth’s crust.” (HS-ESS1-5 and HS-ESS2-1) (NGSS Lead States, 2013)
