Teaching about the inner workings of the earth? Look no further! This PowerPoint + Follow-along Worksheet addresses the following:
-Layers of the earth, including depth and composition
-The theory of plate tectonics
-The theory of continental drift
-Pangaea and fossil records
-Plate movement (lateral, collision and spreading)
-Landforms created by or having to do with plate movement (abyssal planes, continental shelf, folds and faults)
The PowerPoint also has great graphics to help students really see what is going on!
In addition to the PowerPoint, there is a video I always show after teaching about plate tectonics. It's called the Wasatch Flyby and it explores the faults and earthquake risks along the Wasatch fault. (LINK HERE
if you want to preview it!) I have created an anticipation guide that follows the video that students can use while learning.
This is a great overview of the inside of our earth. I have left the PowerPoint fully editable for your convenience. Thanks for stopping by, I would love to answer any questions you may have!
