Changing Earth Ch. 1 Review Who am I?
I’m an area of volcanic activity that develops above rising plumes of magma. Hot spot
I’m the huge underwater mountain ranges that are present in every ocean and circle the earth. mid-ocean ridges
I’m one plate sinking beneath another. Subduction
I state that Earth’s lithosphere is broken into huge, moving slabs of rock driven by motions in the mantle. Theory of plate tectonics
I’m the name that Alfred Wegener gave to the huge supercontinent that he proposed had once existed. Pangaea
I’m the place where older crust is destroyed because two plates converge, or push together Convergent boundary
I occur where two plates move past each other in opposite directions. Transform boundary
I’m the hypothesis that proposed that Earth’s continents were once joined in a single landmass and then gradually moved apart Continental drift
I’m the layer of hotter, softer rock in the upper mantle. Asthenosphere
I’m a plate with oceanic crust sinking under a plate with continental crust. Oceanic -continental subduction
I’m the layer of liquid metals that surrounds the inner core. Outer core
I’m the motion created when heated material continually rises, cools, and sinks. Convection current
I’m the thin layer of rock that surrounds the Earth. Crust
I’m the gap that forms as tectonic plates move apart Rift valley
I am the layer at the center of the Earth. Inner core
I am the three pieces of evidence that proved Wegener’s Continental Drift theory to be correct. Fossils, climate and geography
I am the main driving force of plate tectonics. convection in the astenosphere
I am the part of the Earth that makes up a tectonic plate crust and upper most mantle
I am a boundary that is also known as a spreading center. Divergent boundary
I am the pattern formed by magnetic minerals at a mid-ocean ridge. Same on either side of the ridge
I was formed after a continental- continental collision of the African and European plates. The Alps
Hint: How do the studies of the ocean floor- and everything that is happening there- help explain the theory of plate tectonics?
Plate Tectonics. Brief Structure of the Earth Divided into layers: –Core, mantle, crust.
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.
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.
Mr. Russo Beaumont High School Divergent boundary Convergent boundary Transform fault boundary Oceanic Ridge Rift Valley Seafloor Spreading.
Theory of Plate Tectonics Plate Tectonics Plate Boundaries Causes of Plate Tectonics.
The Theory of Plate Tectonics. Plate Tectonics Plate tectonics is the theory that explains why and how continents move. By the 1960s evidence supported.
The Theory of Plate Tectonics. The lithosphere is divided into separate sections called plates. The plates carry continents and ocean crust or both.
Ch 7: Plate Tectonics A work in progress …. Animation of Continental Drift pangea moving Pangea w/ labels PANGAEA: – Name of a supercontinent. – All continents.
Inside Earth A journey to the center of Earth. Key Terms seismic waves pressure crust basalt granite mantle lithosphere asthenosphere outer core inner.
Continents change position over time. Alfred Wegener Evidence Hypothesis – continental drift Earths continents were once joined Super Continent called.
Warm Up 11/ What hypothesis states that the continents were once joined to form a single supercontinent? a. continental driftc. plate tectonics.

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.
UNIT 4 THE RESTLESS EARTH PART I LESSONS 1, 2, & 3 The Big Idea: The movement of tectonic plates accounts for important features of Earth’s surface and.
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?
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.
Geology - is the study of rocks and materials that make up Earth and the processes that shape it.
Birth of a Theory Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics.
How Do Earths Plates Move? Chapter 1, Section 2, pD14-19.
Warm Up – Page 78 Answer this on page 78 in your notebook: Mrs. Wilson, I still dont get _________________. Could you explain it again?
Earths Crust Convection currents Continental drift – idea that continents have moved slowly to their current positions due to convection currents in.
Continental Drift Chapter 10 Section 1. Continental Puzzle Do the continents fit together perfectly? What continents fit the best? What other information.
Inside Earth Crust What is the outermost layer of the Earth?

Plate Tectonics Part 2 Sea Floor Spreading Wageners theory languished, but scientific investigation continued. In the 1930s to 1960s some interesting discoveries.
Plate Tectonics. The Earth's surface is made up of a series of large plates (like pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle). These plates are in constant motion.
Unit 2: Plate Tectonics Test Review. What is the name of the SUPERCONTINENT that was once one land mass?
Plate Tectonics and Earthquakes Objectives: Students will learn key terms associated with Students will learn key terms associated with plate tectonic.
