Section 5: What Happens Where Plates Meet

Page history last edited by coylem@... 10 years, 6 months ago

 

Essential Questions:

  1. What happens when Tectonic Plates move?

  2. How are natural disasters and Plate Tectonics connected?
  3. Why are most earthquakes and volcanoes concentrated in different areas in the world?
  4. What are subduction zones and faults?

 

Enduring Understandings:

  1. Earthquakes, Volcanoes (both types Shield and Strato), and Mountains are all results of different types of plate boundaries.
  2. Deep Ocean Trenches, Rift Valleys, and Mid Ocean Ridges are also results of tectonic plate boundaries.
