In this activity, students turn a map of the Earth into puzzle pieces to investigate tectonic plates.
This introduction to tectonic plates helps them to visualise the breaks under the ground and begin to see why the areas around the Pacific Ring of Fire are home to so many volcanoes and earthquakes. This Planet Earth and Beyond resource is for NZ Curriculum levels 1 and 2.
