The Incredible Plate Tectonics Comic is a wild adventure in earth science. Follow along with Geo and his robot dog Rocky as they travel back-in-time to Pangea, surf through a tsunami, and escape an erupting volcano - all in time for a first period earth science test!
The journey starts 200 million years ago, and takes readers through modern-day Hawaii, the ocean floor, and deep inside the Earth. The comic story teaches kids about the Earth's core, the theory of plate tectonics, earthquakes, tsunamis, ocean ridges, and volcanic islands.
