Tectonic Plates Map of North America?

I need a map that shows all the major Tectonic Plates of the world and the ones in North America.

After what happened in Japan, my teacher asked us to study all the plates of our country and those of the earth.

I need to print the map in order to study it, where can I find it?
Do you know anything that will help me memorize the tectonic plates?

There are seven to nine major plates, depending on exactly who you ask. Then two-dozen or so secondary plates and tertiary plates and then lots of micro plates.

Just about every one of the Earth's tectonic plates move each year.

Earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis are caused by the movement of tectonic plates.
This map shows you the map of the Earth, along with the tectonic plates of North America and the world that lie underneath the Earth's surface.
