Check with NSTA with The Science Teacher for an article called Pangea Redux.  I cannot remember the exact citation, but it was written by Jack Renton and Deb Hemler.  I think they used construction paper, but I've used craft foam for this, as well.

Has anyone seen a plate tectonics learning activity in which two students each hold a piece of foam and simulate plate boundaries?  I can't remember if I saw this on the internet or at AGU last fall.
