Level : These lessons are meant for forth-year students (14-15 year old students / secondary education - general)

Skill to be practiced: The students must be able to “look for the causes and the consequences of phenomena they have studied, as well as their interactions.”

Necessary background :

It may be useful to explain what a satellite picture is. There is however no necessary background since the vocabulary that will be used can be explained during exercises proposed by the teacher. This sequence can either be an introduction to the issue of plate tectonics, or some exercises about that theory. It can also be integrated in lessons on natural catastrophes.
