Connection to how 90% of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur on or near plate tectonic boundaries.
Students trace the major and minor plate boundaries and associated these boundaries with earthquake locations and volcanic eruption frequency. Noted on the maps are the most notable earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in recorded history. Students can also cut and paste or Velcro the plate boundaries.
Fantastic for college prep, special education, and/or autistic-Asperger’s learners who need differentiated instruction or other non-traditional (direct instruction) pedagogical strategies.
Cut and paste, Smartboard, and/or Velcro and laminate activity that challenges many types of learners.
WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS! Predicated on the fact that the instructor determines the difficulty level of the whole activity or part of the activity based on what information is given and what information is not as well as how verbal questions are presented to the student(s).
Can be infused so learners that need an alternative assessment or may struggle with standard activities/labs/assessments have such an engaging option.
Perfect for homeschooling!
