Understanding Plate Boundaries Transform, divergent, and convergent boundaries
4/29/14 Plate Boundaries • Key Question: How are earthquakes and volcanoes helpful in finding plate boundaries? • Initial Thoughts:
Evidence 1: Mapping Plate Boundaries • Paste the map into your journal • Follow the procedure in the handout to use the earthquake and volcano data to map the plate boundaries.
Label the plates on your map
Draw in arrows to show the direction the plates are moving
Evidence 2: Article & Table Paste the table into your journal Read the class copy of the article and fill out the table. Goal: To understand the 3 different kinds of plate boundaries.
Analysis Questions 1. Describe 2 ways in which the movement of plates can result in the formation of mountains. 2. Using the map from the last lesson, between which plates can you find a) A transform boundary b) A divergent boundary c) A convergent boundary 3. What is the relationship between volcanoes, earthquakes, and plate boundaries?
Summary What did you think about boundaries before this lesson? What did you learn about boundaries from this lesson? (Minimum of 3 sentences!!!) What are some further thoughts or questions you have about boundaries?
Reflection • Sketch the 3 types of boundaries, and show they move using arrows
Big Idea • Mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes are found along plate boundaries.
