Tectonic Plate Movement in Alaska

https://www.teachersdomain.org/resource/ean08.sci.ess.earthsys.aktectonic/

 

This is a short video which was adapted from KUAC-TV and the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.   It shows how mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes in Alaska result from plate tectonics.   I would use this to emphasize that plate tectonics is a phenomenon that directly affects the students lives.   I might ask which of the students has been to Wrangell St.Elias National Park and have one or two describe their experiences there.
