Step-by-step instructions to create a tasty model that illustrates plate tectonic motions. Children can learn how Earth’s tectonic plates (lithosphere) ride atop the slow flowing asthenosphere layer and understand how plates interact at their boundaries.

At GISetc.com we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
