These cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while learning about plate tectonics and earthquakes. There are two versions which contain the following vocabulary terms:   ♦ Convergent boundary, Divergent boundary, Transform boundary, Subduction zone, Fault, Convection current, Hot spot, Tectonic plate                                                                And ♦ Earthquake, Seismic wave, Magnitude, Epicenter, Seismologist, Seismograph, Continental drift, Pangaea

Geology Unit: Plate Tectonics Activity: Earthquakes, Faults, Hot Spots, etc

Divergent plate boundaries are locations where plates are moving away from one another. This occurs above rising convection currents. The rising current pushes up on the bottom of the lithosphere, lifting it and flowing laterally beneath it. This lateral flow causes the plate material above to be dragged along in the direction of flow. At the crest of the uplift, the overlying plate is stretched thin, breaks and pulls apart.

Plate tectonics Montessori Nomenclature Book that can be used in book or card format to help teach about the earths movements. It illustrates and describes 6 features of plate tectonics: Earth's layers, tectonic plates, convergent boundary, divergent boundary, transforming boundary, faultfor instructions on how to use montessori nomenclature click herecontentscover page2x 6 sets of cards (one set with key terms missing so student has to use context to work out the key term)Pages are set for…
