Today students completed a reading on plate tectonics. It covered the history of the theory, from Alfred Wegner all the way to the modern day. It discussed how plates move as a result of convection currents in Earth’s mantle. It explained the dangers of plate boundaries and discussed the three types of boundaries. And lastly, it went over the history of Earth and its every-changing crust. A copy of the reading can be found below.
