This activity has students read and answer questions based upon the article 'The plate tectonic story: a scientific jigsaw.' The article starts with the continental drift theory of Alfred Wegener and adds the evidence from the seafloor to arrive at plate tectonics. It concludes with remarks about mantle dynamics and the future ability to predict earthquakes. Full description.

Most scientists agree that human activities are causing the global climate to heat up. However, in this radio broadcast, two scientists from Alaska explain how nature still has a big say in how much the Arctic heats up and that recent warming is part of a natural cycle, occurring over thousands of years. The clip from 2005 is 3 minutes and 54 seconds in length. Full description.

This site provides information on plate boundaries, which are found at the edge of the lithospheric plates and are of three types: convergent, divergent and conservative. Wide zones of deformation are usually characteristic of plate boundaries because of the interaction between two plates. The three boundaries are characterized by their distinct motions which are described in the text and depicted ... Full description.
