- Lesson Plan on Plate Tectonics!
-Lesson Objective:By the end of the 50-minute class period the students will have used the candy bars to demonstrate the different deformations of the earth’s crust. After completing this activity students will view “The Early Earth”, a NAT-GEO look at the early years of the earth’s crust. Students will complete a worksheet with a partner on the video. To show mastery on the topic, students will have a short quiz at the end of the period. They’ll be shown candy bars that have been deformed by various types of forces then asked to identify the type of force that caused each deformation. 75 % or 3 out of 4 shows mastery.
-Also includes PowerPoint Presentation to accompany lesson.
