Transcript of Tectonic Plate Boundaries

Model the tectonic plate boundaries using the provided materials.

You must explain the boundaries to Ms. Bostick before you enjoy your features!
Take a Peek!
Plate Boundaries
Three types of plate boundaries:
Tectonic Plate Boundaries
Thank you!
S6E5e. Tectonic Processes
We are learning to recognize that lithospheric plates constantly move and cause major geological events on the earth's surface.
Theory of Plate Tectonics
Theory that states the Earth's lithosphere is divided into tectonic plates that slide on top of the asthenosphere.
What are plate boundaries?
Convergent Boundaries
A boundary where two tectonic plates push together.
Divergent Boundaries
A boundary where two tectonic plates are moving away from one another.
Transform Boundaries
A boundary where two tectonic plates slide past each other in a sideways motion.
Sheets of rock that make up the Earth's outer crust are called
tectonic plates
which slide around on top of
molten rock.
Convergent = Mountains
Ex. Himalaya Mountains in South East Asia

Divergent = Rift Valley
Ex. East African Rift Valley

Transform = Faults (Earthquakes)
Ex. San Andreas Fault in California
For being such great students!
