Plate Tectonics



        This WebQuest is intended to facilitate grade 9 students with the topic plate tectonics.  Plate tectonic is a theory which describes the movement of crustal plates on the Earth's surface.  Here is a scenario: Plate tectonics has three children; divergent plate boundary, convergent plate boundary and transform plate boundary.  All the children of plate tectonics move in different directions which causes them to produce different children.  In this scenario students should be detectives and try to find out why the children move in different direction.  Is it because of the direction of the parents which results in them producing different children.  This scenario is intended to built thinking skills in students and also aids in critical thinking.
