1. Why do Earth’s plates move in the first place? Use this demo to show students how convection in Earth’s mantle causes plate movement.
Want to avoid food products in class? USGS has foldable paper fault templates. Check them out here.
4. Here is a fun demo you could do with students to show convection with hot cocoa “plates” (and students end up with a tasty treat).
7. Google Art and Culture has a ton of virtual field trips that are amazing! In this virtual trip students can explore the inside of a Hawaiian Lava Tube. You can check it out here.
15. Check out this Tectonic Explorer where students can choose the number of plates, location of continents, and direction of fault movement.
