This Grade 6 Earth Science Plate Tectonics Unit focuses on plate tectonics and addresses the California Science Standards for 6th grade for the topic of plate tectonics and Investigation and Experimentation. By the end of the unit students will know: Evidence for plate tectonics is derived from the fit of continents; the location of earthquakes, and midocean ridges; and distribution of fossils, rock types, and ancient climatic zones. The Earth is composed of several layers:
