The movement of tectonic plates is most evident at the boundaries
between the plates. There are three main types of boundaries:
Convergent Boundaries - A convergent boundary is where two tectonic plates push together.
Sometimes one plate will move under the other. This is called subduction. Although the movement is slow, convergent boundaries can be areas of geological activity such as the forming of mountains and volcanoes. They can also be areas of high earthquake activity.
Divergent Boundaries - A divergent boundary is one where two plates are getting pushed apart. The area on land where the boundary occurs is called a rift. New land is formed by magma pushing up from the mantle and cooling as it reaches the surface.
Transform Boundaries - A transform boundary is one where two plates slide past each other. These places are often called faults and can be areas where earthquakes often occur.
Please Read very carfully and answer with complete sentences using a word document.
Imagine you if the movies were real and the scientists in the movies have just warned you that there is an impending disaster. The disaster is a volcano (convergent boundry), an earthquake (transform boundry), or an underwater Earthquake(transform boundry).
