Investigate tectonic plates, natural disasters, weathering and erosion in this interactive, fast-paced trip of geologic proportions through the Earth’s crust.

Volcanoes, earthquakes, and landslides, oh my! Beneath the surface of our ever-changing, dynamic planet, hidden dangers lurk deep within.

In this presentation, students will examine tectonic plates and discover the chaos they can create when seismic shifts occur; investigate how the landscape transforms through weathering and erosion; and see how the layers of the Earth stack up.

Explore the moving Earth beneath our feet as we traverse the Earth’s crust!

Recommended for 3rd Grade and above
