Free KS3 presentation on plate tectonics!

Explain plate boundaries and earthquakes to your KS3 class with the help of our free presentation!

A map of plate boundaries shows your students where earthquakes are most likely to occur worldwide.

Two animations demonstrate exactly how destructive and conservative plate boundaries can lead to earthquakes, explaining subduction and introducing the example of the San Andreas fault in California. An interactive activity then asks your class to label the epicentre, focus, and seismic waves on a diagram.
