Science: Plate Tectonics

A few resources I rounded up for our studies on Plate Tectonics. I love to supplement our textbook with other types of media, especially videos and PowerPoints.

 

A little background information and plate tectonics animations:

Plate tectonics and major earthquakes in 2010

http://gulfnews.com/news/world/plate-tectonics-and-major-earthquakes-in-2010-1.592056

This is our semi local online newspapers (Dubai). It has a map showing the plates as well as a list of earthquakes that have happened this year so that you can compare the seismic activity to the boundaries of the plates.

Explains the Pangaea theory as well as evidence that supports this theory.

This has animations showing the different types of plate movement (divergence, convergence, transform…)

 

For PowerPoints, just Google (or bing or yahoo or whatever): “Plate Tectonics PowerPoints.” I came up with a lot of direct links to powerpoints from that, plus my ever favorite, number one spot to check for educational powerpoints: www.pppst (Pete’s PowerPoint Station)…..for science: science.pppst.com/platetectonics.html

Here’s the PPPST page for plate tectonics:
