If the plate don't break the Earth must shake!" The trial and tribulations of Plate Tectonics and the natural disasters associated with this theory.
An Interdisciplinary, thematic, standards-based unit on plate tectonics and the effects of the natural disasters occurring on the earth's surface due to plate movement. There are many natural disasters that occur around the world that are directly related to plate tectonics. This unit will teach students how the theory of plate tectonics is directly related to Wegener's theory of continental drift, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Also included is how prepare and protect themselves from these natural disasters.
