Plate Tectonics vs. Google Earth

I was looking for actual lesson plans, but came across this ¬†map ¬†that someone was nice enough to produce. It’s a Google Earth map that has been labeled with many of the visibly active plate boundaries. You can click on a bubble to read about the tectonic activity, then zoom in and take a look. I thought the shorelines of the Red Sea were particularly interesting in their almost perfect puzzle-piece appearance. In trying to trace back to the original site that lead me to interactive map, I found what might be a more promising link to some lesson plan ideas. At the top of the list is the initial link I found that brought me to the map–I wasn’t too impressed, but there are several links here claiming to have lesson plans of some sort that might be worth checking out.
