Earth as a jigsaw - plate tectonics in Europe

The lithosphere, which is the outermost shell of a planet is broken into tectonic plates, which are in move. Since billions of years lithospheric plates are moving, forming and breaking-up the continents.

During this lesson will be shown main processes connected to plate tectonics in the context of evolution of the European continent. Students will learn about tectonic plates, types of plate boundaries and other processes that led to the formation of the present European continent.

The lesson will end with a KAHOOT quiz. Students can participate in it with a mobile device with internet access.
