Plate Tectonics and Plate Boundaries Lesson

A Geography PowerPoint lesson and 2 worksheets on the topic of Plate Tectonics. The PowerPoint teaches pupils about tectonic plates and the three main types of boundaries - convergent, divergent, transform. Suitable for KS2/KS3. 16 slides in total - including the cover page and the credits page. 2 pages of worksheets. Please consider leaving a review if you enjoy the resource.

Plate Tectonics

Plate Tectonics This is the Plate Tectonics Differentiation Stations. This product consists of six different stations for students to learn about plate tectonics. The student will learn about the crust, upper mantle, lithosphere, asthenosphere, convection currents, subduction, convergent boundaries, transform boundaries, Pangaea, Alfred Wegener, Mountain building, and much more! How It Works Station 1- Vocabulary matching game allows students to match key vocabulary terms with definitions. Station 2- This station allows students to read an article focusing on plate tectonics and to answer multiple-choice questions. Station 3- Students are given the opportunity to sketch major concepts within plate tectonics. Station 4- The student reads a passage and then writes constructed responses. Station 5- Students read provided fact cards and writes down the correct vocabulary term. Station 6 – Students cut out the seven continents and construct a model of Pangaea.

Plate tectonics - Earthquakes and volcanoes

A brilliant selection of resources I have created to teach plate tectonics. I have included easy to follow PowerPoint's for each lesson and attached the relevant worksheets/printouts. The students loved the diversity of the activities which includes maps from memory, desk mat tasks, market place, card sorts, earthquake proof building design, timelines, cartoon strips, a mid unit test and lots more interesting tasks. I have included starter tasks for each lesson, learning objectives using what, why and how, main tasks and consolidate/plenary tasks. They are really easy to follow. I have included lessons on the following topics: The structure of the Earth Japanese earthquake and tsunami Earthquake hazard management Supervolcano What are earthquakes and how are they measured? Pompeii 79 AD What are the hazards associated with volcanoes?
