Materials 1 scoop of frosting = Asthenosphere 1 graham cracker = Continental Plate 1 fruit roll-up = Oceanic Plate wax paper water paper towels
Plate Movement Lab 1.Two persons per group 2.Each group will be given materials. 3.Each person will perform two boundary types. 4.For each page, you will illustrate a comic strip and answer the questions in complete sentences.
Divergent Plate Boundaries 1.Cut the oceanic plate into two pieces. 2.Add one scoop of asthenosphere to the wax paper. 3.Place the oceanic plates on top of the asthenosphere.
Divergent Plates 4.Press firmly on the oceanic plates, and separate from the center. 5. See the results, and write your answers in the comic strip.
Answering the Questions Draw a comic strip. BeforeDuringAfter Show asthenosphere Draw oceanic plate on Draw plates diverging on wax paper. top of asthenosphere. and final result.
Convergent Boundaries Continental-Oceanic 1.Remove one oceanic plate. 2.Place one continental plate down on top of the asthenosphere.
Convergent Boundaries 3.Slowly and gently push the continental crust over the oceanic crust. 4.Look at result. 5. Answer the questions, and record in the comic strip.
Answering the Questions Draw a comic strip. Before Both crust During The motion of the crust After The final result of convergent plates colliding
Convergent Boundaries Continental-Continental 1.On a new piece of wax paper, divide the continental crust into two pieces. 2.Dip one end of the continental crust in the water for three seconds.
Convergent Boundaries Continental-Continental 3. Push the two wet sides together. 4. Record results after the continental crust collide.
Answering the Questions Draw a comic strip. Before Both crust before colliding During Illustrate the motion of the crusts. After The final result of convergent plates colliding
Transform Boundary 1.Place your last continental crust on the wax paper. Break it into two pieces. 2.Shear the plates against each other, in an up and down motion.
Transform Boundary 3.Shear the continental plate for 10 seconds. 4.Record the results, and see how the shape has changed. 5.Label fault line.
Answering the Questions Draw a comic strip. Before Both crust before shearing During Illustrate the motion of the crusts. After The final result of transform plates shearing
Answer Concluding Questions Answer the conclusion questions in part II. Clean your area, and throw away the trash.
