PD9 - Plate Tectonics

Melbourne Gilrs' College

September 01, 2017 @ 9:30 AM

This PD explains how the theory of Plate Tectonics was developed and how this relatively new paradigm not only
explains why the Earth is so dynamic but also how it can be used to reconstruct the past appearance of the planet, predict the most likely locations of mineral and hydrocarbon deposits and explain the distribution patterns of fossil and extant animals and plants.

At the completion of this workshop teachers and laboratory technicians will be equipped with the background information and resources, including some practical activities, to assist them with teaching the requirements of
the Victorian Curriculum, particularly Science at the Year 9 level.
