Gets students thinking deeper about plate tectonics
Students developed a deeper understanding of Plate Tectonics in one period using this app, than they typically would across days of "typical" instruction. I highly recommend this app for anyone teaching plate tectonics. There's really nothing I would suggest as far as improvements.
How I Use It
Students in 8th grade used this app individually to deepen their understanding of plate tectonics. The content teacher created a guide for them to use along with the app to keep them on track. Overall, it was a huge success. The students were completely engaged with the app and learned a lot.
