An excerpt of a map showing the different tectonic plates that create the Pacific Ring of Fire.
This activity is meant to help students orient themselves geographically to the regions addressed in the Sister Mountains Project. Students identify continents, bodies of water, countries and plate boundaries to become familiar with the Pacific Rim/Ring of Fire geography. As students work through other activities, they may want to refer back to their maps as a reminder.
