Product Description

Learn the fundamentals of Plate Tectonics with this simple lab by using an orange as a modeling tool. Students will peel an orange to represent the Earth's plates and try to fit them back together again by using toothpicks. It is a great representation of how the plates of the Earth are irregular in shape and don't fit exactly like pieces of a puzzle.

Lab includes easy to follow directions with visuals, tables, and review questions. There is also a color-coded diagram of the Earth for students to label.

Have fun with science and have a snack at the same time!
