Tectonics is a series of geospatial investigations designed to augment existing middle school Earth science curriculum. Students use Web GIS to investigate important tectonics concepts. The investigations include scientific practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas from the National Research Council (2012) Framework for K-12 Science Education.
