The land beneath your feet is moving. It's also crumpling, squishing, and stretching. Join us in a fun and interactive workshop to gain hands-on experience with data-rich activities for your classroom. These lessons infuse high-precision GPS data to explore and identify plate boundaries. Students will practice visualizing the tectonic movements of California, Alaska, and the world while practicing NGSS concepts, scientific practice, and cross-cutting skills. Free poster and learning materials.
