Plate Tectonics for Kids

My daughter is learning earth science this year. She struggled a bit to figure out plate tectonics so I spent some time finding material on the Internets Tubes to help her out. First, I found some cool YouTube videos. Here's one.

Next I found some nice Google Earth overlays showing the Earth's plates and showing volcanic eruptions in the last 10,000 years.

It made a big difference in her understanding of the subject. Yay!

Cool. We just had a 5.8, and nobody felt it (too far offshore).

Just had a good captcha to report, too (ouggeole)
