There are a lot of good plate-tectonics websites. Here are three I
particularly like:

1. This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics, by W. Jacquelyne Kious
and Robert I. Tilling: http://pubs.usgs.gov/publications/text/dynamic.html

2. The Paleomap Project , which depicts "the changing distribution of land
and sea during the past 1100 million years" and into the future:

3. UC Berkeley's Plate Tectonics animations:
