Plate Tectonics: Whether you're introducing or reviewing types of plate boundaries, this print and go activity is a winner! Get your students up out of their seats as they travel to 6 stations, where they will read about each plate boundary- how it's formed, the geographic feature created, and examples on Earth. Students record features and examples in their graphic organizer that serves as a fantastic study guide.

There is a full 8 1/2 x 11 Poster on each type of plate boundary:

  • Oceanic Diverging
  • Continental Diverging
  • Oceanic Converging
  • Continental Converging
  • Oceanic/ Continental Converging
  • Transform

This resource also includes an additional one-page reading on types of plate boundaries. The reading includes one page of coordinating questions.

The digital version of this resource is also included.

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
