This site from Cornell University presents an illustrated and interactive description of plate tectonics. Topics covered include an introduction to plate boundaries and sea floor spreading, and the use of earthquake activity to locate plate boundaries. After each topic is established, it is followed by a series of exercises using the QUEST interactive program.
