1 Bell Questions 9/21/11 1.What do the strips in the model you made yesterday represent? 2.What are two of the three causes of plate motion? 3.List the three different kinds of tectonic plate boundaries.

3 2.Cratons large areas of stable rock at the center of continents

4 3.Terrane a piece of lithosphere that has a unique geologic history. 4.Accretion The terrane is scraped off of the subducting plate and becomes part of the continent.
