Description:

This Teaching Box is an online assembly of interrelated learning concepts that focuses on finding the evidence for plate tectonics. Digital resources, education standards, and comprehensive lesson plans are combined to provide an inquiry-based exploration of each of three lines of evidence for plate tectonics: fossil distribution, locations, depths, and types of earthquakes; and locations and types of volcanoes. For each line of evidence there is a map showing supporting concepts and their associated standards, preconceptions, lessons organized into teachable units, and a reference section describing the resources used in the box. An introductory activity is also included to engage the students and to provide a segue into the theory.
