Crewes Plate Tectonics STAIR

I think the presentation of the material was eye catching and would keep student interest. I think this would be a great review or introductory activity.  The presentation was easy to use, and flowed nicely.  If used as an introductory activity, I think breaking into smaller portions overall would be beneficial.  It is a lot of content to remember in one class period.  If this was used a review activity, I think it would be much more doable the way it is presented.

I would like to use this in the fall with my new group of students, to see how they respond.

The only real recommendation I would have for this presentation is that I would try to find videos showing the movement vs. still pictures.  I feel students would remember the boundaries easier.

Overall, good concept to tackle, and dead on for MI benchmarks.
