Engaging visual SMART Notebook supplement to assist with the teaching of the 3 types of plate boundaries. Also includes explanation and pictures of 7 plate boundary "case studies" around the world.
Student Objective: I can analyze plate boundaries, the forces that cause them, and the results of plate collisions.
These 60 SMART Notebook slides (PDF also included for those without SMART Notebook) outline the 3 major types of plate boundaries (convergent, divergent, strike-slip) for student note-taking or discussion.
Note - This is not necessarily a lesson plan, but it can be used as an excellent focal point of a lesson. The students in my classes had a decent understanding of subduction / sea-floor spreading before reaching this point. We took notes using a graphic organizer, and we spent multiple days dissecting these slides.
Science Vocabulary: divergent, convergent, transform fault, oceanic, continental
