Teach tectonic plates with our new model!

Show how tectonic plates shape the world with our interactive model. 

Your students first make their model tectonic plates using the colourful parts and then use them to look at their structure and how tectonic plates interact at their margins. These interactions form mountains, deep ocean trenches, islands, volcanoes and cause earthquakes!

The model can be used to look at the following interactions: oceanic meeting oceanic plate, oceanic meeting continental plate, continental meeting continental plate, conservative plate margins and mid-ocean ridges.
