Last week we made map colouring pages. This week, we're continuing the educational mapping worksheet idea with a scientific angle.
What do earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains have in common?
Indeed. They all exist or happen along the edges of tectonic plates. Tectonic plates are fascinating. They make up the entire crust of the earth, fitting together like a giant puzzle. These plates are continually moving, scraping against each other, spreading apart or colliding.
Earth's geography changes as this movement creates new ocean floor, mountain ranges and active volcanoes.
This printable worksheet has a map with all the tectonic plates identified for reference and a blank tectonic map for practice and labelling.
The tectonic plate polygons are also highly colourable, so why not shade them in to create a bright and fabulous map?
