This resource has two parts to it. You can choose the order in which you use them.
Part 1: One page close reading that introduces (or reviews) the types of plate boundaries. Covers the terms: subduction, transform, converging, diverging. Examples and explanations given. Questions and labeling diagram for students provided.
Part 2: 7 posters colorfully illustrate each type of plate boundary with different types of crust. A graphic organizer is provided for students to fill in as they read over each poster. Laminate the posters for years of use, or for a bulletin board. I like to group students and have them read over each poster and fill in information together. For each plate boundary type, an explanation is given as to what occurs there, as well as real life examples. See preview for a better understanding.
