Along plate boundaries exists most of the Earth’s volcanoes and…
What is earthquakes?
The most famous plate boundary
What is the Ring of Fire?
The type of boundary where plates push together
The type of boundary where plates slide together What is a convergent fault?
The type of plate where boundaries push apart
What is a divergent fault?
The type of fault where the plates slide side-by-side
What is a transform fault?
The imaginary lines that travel vertically on a map and tell us the East or West direction of a place on Earth.
What is longitude?
The imaginary lines that travel horizontally on a map and tell us the North or South direction of a place on Earth.
What is latitude?
The line of latitude that crosses through countries such as Congo, Indonesia, and Ecuador
What is the Equator?
The Hawaiian Islands were formed from volcanoes that occurred at a
What is a hot spot?
The shock waves that are sent out when an earthquake occurs
What are seismic waves?
The Earth’s Center made up of solid iron
What is the inner core?
The second layer of the Earth made up of liquid iron
What is the outer core?
The third layer of the Earth made up of liquid rock under tremendous heat and pressure.
What is the Mantle?
The layer of the Earth that flows on molten rock
What is the Crust?
The name of the Earth’s first continent
What is Pangaea?

Changes to Earth’s Surface Chapter 6. Prior Knowledge What are the layers of the Earth? What are the layers of the Earth? What causes Earth’s surface.
The Theory of Plate Tectonics. Plate Tectonics Plate tectonics is the theory that explains why and how continents move. By the 1960s evidence supported.
Plate Tectonics What evidence do scientists have to support the fact that the Earths crust is continuously moving?
How Do Earths Plates Move? Chapter 1, Section 2, pD14-19.
Some questions we will answer today: –How is the earth always changing? –What forces inside the earth create and change landforms on the surface? –What.
The Structure of the Earth and Plate Tectonics. Structure of the Earth The Earth is made up of 3 main layers: –Core –Mantle –Crust Inner core Outer core.
CLICK ON THE YELLOW CIRCLE TO GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE How Earthquakes Shape and Alter the Earth’s Surface.
1.How do the rocks of the crust and lithosphere compare? Rocks in the crust are less dense and made mainly of granite. The rocks in the lithosphere are.
Chapter 8: Plate TectonicsChapter 8: Plate Tectonics 8.1: Earth has several layers 8.2: Continents change position over time 8.3: Plates move apart 8.4:
Do Now # 4 What is the difference between convergent, divergent, and transform boundaries?
Choose a category. You will be given the answer. You must give the correct question. Click to begin.
Unit 2: Plate Tectonics Test Review. What is the name of the SUPERCONTINENT that was once one land mass?
Plate Tectonics Continental Drift Theory Theory of Plate Tectonics Plate Boundaries.
Earth’s Layers Pages C6-11. Earth’s Layers Crust-where we walk Crust-where we walk Mantle-thickest layer, made mostly of solid rock Mantle-thickest layer,
Plate Tectonics 6.E.2.2 Explain how crustal plates and ocean basins are formed, move and interact using earthquakes, heat flow and volcanoes to reflect.
Imagine the Earth as a hardboiled egg……………………. The thin brittle shell is the crust that humans live on. The thick jelly like white is the deep hot magma.
Topic: Earth’s Features Essential Question: What crustal features are created by the movement of Earth’s plates?
Theory of Plate Tectonics Plate Tectonics Plate Boundaries Causes of Plate Tectonics.
Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis. Earthquakes Fault: a break in the Earths crust. Blocks of the crust slide past each other along fault lines. When.
