  • Slide 1
  • Slip, Slide and Collide How Do Tectonic Plates Move?
  • Slide 2
  • 3 Types of Plate Boundaries (1) Divergent (constructive) Convergent (destructive) Transform (conservative)
  • Slide 3
  • Slip Divergent Plate Boundary (Constructive)
  • Slide 4
  • Divergent Plates animation http://www.learner.org/interactives/dynami cearth/slip3.htmlhttp://www.learner.org/interactives/dynami cearth/slip3.html
  • Slide 5
  • Divergent = Constructive (2)Divergent plates separate and new crust is formed to fill in the gap left by the two divergent plates.
  • Slide 6
  • Where are Divergent Plate Boundaries? (3)Mid Atlantic Ridge- runs along the Atlantic Ocean between the Americas and Africa/Europe. (They are getting farther apart every year!)
  • Slide 7
  • (4) Draw a constructive Divergent Plate Boundary.
  • Slide 8
  • Mini Milky Way Divergent Plate Of Science!!
  • Slide 9
  • Slide Transform Plate Boundary (conservative)
  • Slide 10
  • Transform Plates animation http://www.learner.org/interactives/dynami cearth/slip3.htmlhttp://www.learner.org/interactives/dynami cearth/slip3.html
  • Slide 11
  • Transform= Conservative (5) Transform Plates move past one another, sliding. They do not destroy or create land.
  • Slide 12
  • Where are Transform Plate Boundaries? (6) San Andres Fault in California. (7) When the plates move past one another they create earthquakes.
  • Slide 13
  • (8)Draw a conservative Transform Plate Boundary.
  • Slide 14
  • Graham Cracker Transform Plate Boundary of Science!!
  • Slide 15
  • Collide Convergent Plate Boundary (destructive)
  • Slide 16
  • Convergent Plates animation
  • Slide 17
  • Convergent = Destructive (9) Subduction- the process by which two plates collide and one plate is drawn underneath the other. The Older Plate normally goes underneath the younger plate because it is heavier.
  • Slide 18
  • Convergent Plates and Subduction (10) Convergent Plates are destroyed when one goes underneath the other.
  • Slide 19
  • Convergent Plate Boundary Convergent can either be (11) continental-oceanic, oceanic-oceanic continental-continental
  • Slide 20
  • Where are Continental Continental Plate Boundaries? The Himalayas in India. The two plates collided and pushed one plate up to create the mountains.
  • Slide 21
  • Where are Oceanic- Oceanic Plate Boundaries? Mariana Trench off the coast of Japan and the Philippines. Islands Underwater volcanoes form new land masses
  • Slide 22
  • Where are Oceanic- Continental Plate Boundaries? Volcanoes- found all along the Ring of Fire where active volcanoes are found because of subducting plates melting and becoming magma for volcanoes.
  • Slide 23
  • (12) Draw a destructive Convergent Plate Boundary.
  • Slide 24
  • Oreo Cookie Subduction Convergent Plate Boundary
  • Slide 25
  • Plates in the Future In 50 Million years, scientist believe that the world will look like this! California Russia
