Tectonics investigator: magnetic stripes [ESL]

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Published on 2016 April 8th

Investigate tectonic plate behaviour. Simulate the movement of tectonic plates over millions of years. Investigate how the changing magnetic polarity of the Earth has helped geologists form theories about tectonic plate movements. This learning object is the second in a series of three objects.

Students investigate the formation of magnetic stripes at divergent plate boundaries.
Students interpret the role of magnetic stripes in support of tectonic plate theory.
