Try this engaging digital review activity after teaching your students about Earth’s phenomenon of Plate Tectonics! This activity reviews characteristics of the layers of the Earth, the theory of continental drift, the types of plate boundaries (convergent, divergent, transform), and other related terms such as convection current, magma, fault line, and seafloor spreading. You will share a Google Sheets link with your students through your Google Classroom (select “Make a Copy for Each Student” while creating the Assignment) that will allow them to Make A Copy of their own Abracadabra Pixel Art activity. They will read brief descriptions of 20 vocabulary words and they will type the vocabulary word that matches that description into the answer column. This pixel art activity includes a word bank. If a student’s answer to a question is correct, color will magically appear in the cells in the center of the spreadsheet. If the answer is incorrect, the color will not appear and the student will know that the answer is wrong.

This Abracadabra Pixel Art is a rainbow snail!

The download contains the link to access this activity in Google Drive. The link will take you to a screen that directs you to Make A Copy of the Google Sheets assignment into your own Drive. This is a self-checking activity, so have students show you their finished picture or Turn In their work via Google Classroom to check that they are successfully understanding the concepts related to plate tectonics!

I have also included a link to the Answer Key for the activity, which you will also be able to add to your Drive.

* Please note: Depending on the size of students’ screens, they may need to change the spreadsheet’s ‘ZOOM’ size to 75% or so in order to see the whole magic picture at once!
