You are going to create a poster that describes a geological phenomenon that was created by plate tectonics. You will choose and research a feature of your choice.
This is a project that I created for student to show mastery in lieu of a test assessment for our final section on plate tectonics, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Students were given the choice of 24 different geologic phenomenon to research. More difficult topics are marked with an (H). Students were required to use library books and the internet to research and answer the questions above. I provided approximately 80 books from the public library to assist with this. We also had the school I-pads for one class period to research anything that was not found in the books. I provided the rough draft templates included in this package. Students completed final posters on an 11x17 sized piece paper. I provided a template for my students who typically struggle and those with IEP accommodations.
