Treasures of the Earth | When Did Plate Tectonics Begin?
4 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Scientists know Earth's plates are constantly moving. One big question scientists have is, "When did they start moving?" PBS 6-8 Story of Earth series presents the research of one scientist trying to answer this question. Viewers learn...
Miss Selle's Science Songs - Plate Tectonics
4 mins 5th - 8th
Middle school scientists will think you're the coolest teacher on the planet when you use this video to help them understand the basics of plate tectonics. The lyrics, compiled by science teacher Sue Selle, are played to the music from...
Plate Tectonics Day 4 Earth's Interior Structure and Convection Currents
6th - 8th
Students introduced to the interior structure of the Earth. They explore how the Earth's interior is broken down according to both it's physical properties and it's chemical composition. Students explore how convection currents within...
ESS2B - Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions
6 mins 2nd - 12th
Take the mystery away from earthquakes. A video lesson explains the theory of plate tectonics and how it relates to earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and oceanic trenches. The instructor gives specific feedback on the progression of the...
Plate Tectonics Cycle — First Grade
1st CCSS: Adaptable
Including four units on volcanoes, earthquakes, plate tectonics, and hazards associated with these forces, each unit is intended to last about five days. But how are they all related, and what on earth do they have to do with our planet? Use this collection from Math/Science Nucleus to engage your first graders in the exploration of the plate tectonics cycle.
Plate Tectonics: First Grade Lesson Plans and Activities
1st CCSS: Adaptable
A set of first grade geology lessons focuses on plate tectonics and movement of plate boundaries. During the pre-lab, learners experience three types of plate movement through a kinesthetic demonstration. The lab demonstrates stresses...
