Description:

In this lesson plan students will learn about the theory of plate tectonics and the geological history of Earth. They will investigate the region known as the Ring of Fire, where 75 percent of the active and dormant volcanoes of Earth are located. Students will review the theory of plate tectonics; use the Internet to research the Ring of Fire and answer questions about this region; view an animation of the tectonic history of Earth and draw maps predicting what the Ring of Fire region will look like in one hundred million years; and write paragraphs explaining what they have drawn.
