Teaching Tectonic Plate Theory? This webquest sends your students on an interactive journey through the Plates on the Move interactive website. Build and reinforce knowledge of plate boundaries and the geological processes that result. The webquest worksheet provides the teacher with evidence that learning is taking place!
Students are directed to visit three locations of their choice to discover the tectonic plates and plate movements that are creating important geological events such as mountain building and earthquakes. Using evidence collected through the webquest, students determine the type of boundary occurring at each site.
For most students the webquest works best as a follow up activity to an introductory lesson on transform, convergent and divergent boundaries. It also serves as a great review before a test.
