This activity allows students to easily connect prior knowledge of continent and ocean names to the new knowledge of tectonic plates. Students start off labeling the continents in the INB or other paper. They are then provided with an overlay, printed on transparencies, to label and tape down over it.
Students love the fun an interactive way this activity plays out.
