5th Grade Earth & Space Science Worksheet

Plate Tectonics

Plate Tectonics

Children get an introduction to plate tectonics in this geology worksheet. Students are asked to consider what earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis have in common, then read about the three types of plate movements: divergent, subduction, and lateral slipping. They then practice what they have learned by matching the name of each movement to an illustrated diagram. Designed for a fifth grade science curriculum, this resource helps children develop a deeper understanding of the source and connection between natural phenomena.
