Donna Moore's insight:

This is one of the best exercises I have come across in my 14 years of teaching.  Students are a little uncomfortable because they have to stretch their thinking, but the payoff for the thinking is huge.

 

I'd recommend this exercise to anyone teaching plate tectonics to middle schoolers.

 

One challenge: getting the maps printed and laminated.  You need at least one set of large maps.  Smaller sets of the maps (at least 11 x 17) for each cooperative group would have really helped.
