A:B: Plate TectonicsConvergent Tectonics C:D: Divergent TectonicsPangaea Tectonics #2 The gradual drifting apart of land masses over time is caused by _____ ________.
A. plate tectonics
A:B: Plate TectonicsConvergent Tectonics C:D: Divergent TectonicsPangaea Tectonics #3 The folding and faulting of rocks at plate boundaries is caused by ______ _______.
A. plate tectonics
A:B: Continents fitting together like a puzzle. Matching fossils found in opposite sides of oceans. C:D: Matching mountains structures found in opposite sides of oceans. All of these #4 Which of the following support/s the concept of Plate Tectonics? Watch short Plate Tectonics video
D. All of these
A:B: ConvergentTransform C:D: DivergentContinental #5 The type of plate boundary that occurs where rocks on opposite sides of the fault move in opposite directions. Plate Boundaries
A:B: TransformSeafloor C:D: DivergentConvergent # 6 What type of boundary is formed when two tectonic plates are pushed together?
A:B: TransformSeafloor C:D: DivergentConvergent #7 What type of boundary is formed when two plates are moving apart?
A:B: TransformSeafloor C:D: DivergentConvergent #8 What type of boundary is formed when two plates grind past each other?
A:B: Mid-ocean ridgemantle C:D: Rift valleyplates #9 As a result of sea floor spreading, magma moves toward the __________, cools and forms new ocean floor and ridges. Watch short Sea-Floor Spreading video
A. Mid-ocean ridge
