Plate tectonics map project

Plate Tectonics Map Project

Create a fictional world complete with continents, oceans, tectonic plates, mountains, earthquakes, volcanoes, and other evidence of a dynamic earth.

Your world will have its own fictional history that explains the locations of these detailed features.  You will create a Map that illustrates all of the features of your world.  You will be graded highly on creativity and effort. 


Day one 2 checkpoints

Day One – 2 Checkpoints

Checkpoint:

_____ 10 tectonic plates

_____ Convergent, divergent, and transform boundaries are present

_____ Arrows to show movement

_____ Movement is logical

_________________________Teacher Signature

Checkpoint:

_____ Pangaea has been created and cut into 7 continents

_____ Continents named

_____ Oceans named

_____ Plates named

_________________________Teacher Signature

So how to start??


Plate tectonics map project

Start with a piece of copy paper and pencil (MUST BE A PENCIL!!)


Plate tectonics map project

Draw the shape of your supercontinent


Plate tectonics map project

Begin adding shapes of continents


Plate tectonics map project

Must have at least 7 continents


Plate tectonics map project

Begin adding arrows showing the motion of each continent

Remember you must create all three types of boundaries and the crustal features they create.


Plate tectonics map project

Finish showing the motion of each continent with arrows on each

Movement must make sense. Must create; faults, rift valleys, volcanic mountains, island arcs, mid-ocean ridges, trenches, & folded mountains.


Plate tectonics map project

Take a moment to make a quick copy of your supercontinent as you will need to turn in a sketch of it.


Plate tectonics map project

Now you are ready to cut out your continents(keep track of them!)


Plate tectonics map project

Re-assemble your continents – then begin to push your continents in the direction of your arrows.


Plate tectonics map project

As you move your continents, make sure you are creating all three plate boundaries.


Plate tectonics map project

Glue continents down, make sure you will have at least four oceans.


Plate tectonics map project

Adding names of continents and oceans of my world – PIXAR.


Plate tectonics map project

Now add plate boundaries (some should be on land and others under the ocean(must have 10 plate boundaries)


Plate tectonics map project

Don’t forget to fill our your worksheets as you are creating your world.


Plate tectonics map project

By end of Day 2 you should have your rough draft map and worksheets completed.

Remember: you will turn in your rough draft map, worksheeets, and project packet along with you final map.


Due on friday 2 21

Due on Friday (2/21)

Rough draft map

Sketch of your supercontinent

2 project worksheets

Project packet

Final map of your world (poster size)
