Resource Description

This short comic book tells the story of Geo who is on his way to write an Earth Science test and as he reviews the subject in his mind, the story makes parallels between elements of plate tectonics and his everyday actions. The information provided in the comic focuses mostly on plate tectonics but also includes information on other processes, such as volcanoes and rock formation. The comic book-style illustrations help reinforce the concepts introduced, and additional, more detailed information is provided at the end of the book in a text-based section. Useful as an introduction to earthquakes and plate tectonics, especially for visual learners. Log in to read the full review.
