In this activity, students will be joining with current geoscientists in becoming a part of the research community that is exploring and revolutionizing the theory of plate tectonics. Through the use of mapping skills and inquiry-based problem solving, students will predict and then analyze the layout of the tectonic plates that form the ocean floors. They will also compare the depth of various regions ... Full description.

The Great Rift Valley is a huge gash cut into East Africa, extending 3000 kilometers from Malawi in southern Africa to the Red Sea in the north. Beneath the Great Rift Valley, the next new ocean on Earth may be forming. This radio broadcast ptovides interviews with geologists who are studying this part of Africa to learn how new seas appear. The tectonic plates that form the continents drift continuously ... Full description.

In this lesson, students explore some of the magnetic evidence which led to the discovery of sea floor spreading. Students should have an introduction to plate movements and crustal processes before working on this activity. They will use compasses to simulate magnetometers, exploring a model sea floor (prepared by the teacher) which has concealed bar magnets. They will then be asked to explain how ... Full description.
