This plate tectonics lesson takes students through a warm-up, reading passage, independent activity, extension activities, and an assessment.
Students begin the plate tectonics lesson with a warm-up graphic organizer. They then read a passage and complete an activity where they label diagrams as divergent, convergent, and transform plate boundaries and describe what is happening at each plate boundary.
For early finishers, there are extensions to either analyze a world map and answer some questions about the different plate boundaries, or to come up with a metaphor or simile for each of the plate boundary diagrams. Students end the plate tectonics lesson with an assessment activity or exit ticket.
There are extensive instructions and support for substitutes included for the in-class versions. The distance learning version includes a Google Form answer sheet.
The Science Sub Plans are complete lessons designed to make your day out of the class a breeze for you, your students, and the substitute teacher. They are also perfect for distance learning.

The sub plans have been updated to include options for distance learning. I’ve made it easy for you to send your students a student-only PDF and a link to a Google Form to record their answers. You could also send the student-only PDF and have them annotate right on top of the file if your school uses PDF editors. These are great materials for remote learning and at-home assignments.
- The middle school science sub plans are designed to be student-centered. Each activity is thoughtfully created with a substitute teacher in mind.
- Your substitute will think you are a rockstar after reviewing the lesson for the day. Each plan has teacher directions, a letter from you to the students, student expectations, engaging activities, academic and behavior checkpoints, answer keys, and more.
- Each of the lessons can be used in a variety of ways. They can be left for a substitute, sent to students in ISS, given as homework or extra credit, or used in a small group setting.
