Students plotted the location of various landforms and events (Earthquakes, volcanoes, volcanic islands, hot spots, etc.) on a world map over the last couple days. Students then were to compare the landform/event map to the plate map that we constructed earlier last week. Based on the observations of both maps, we concluded the close relationship between the location of most of these landforms/events AND the location of the plate boundaries. These landforms/events are not only a result of the movement of the Earth's plates, but also serve as evidence of the existance and location of the boundaries that we have discussed.
Students turned in thier maps and we began taking notes on how thiere various landforms/events are created through the movement of the Lithosphere's Plates!
