(B) Relate plate tectonics to the formation of crustal
features
ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS:
-What features of Earth’s crust do convergent, divergent, and
transform boundaries form?
-What land features formed by the movement of tectonic plates can
be observed using images from space?
DAILY OBJECTIVES:
Students will relate plate tectonics to the formation of crustal
features, such as mountain ranges, trenches, volcanoes, earthquakes,
and mid-ocean ridges.

On the next two blank pages in your INB, create a
Plate Tectonics Foldable.
Fold each page in half vertically.
Cut the paper in half vertically, cutting from the
outer edge to the half way point to create a flap.
Do this for both pages to create a total of 4 flaps.

Use the latitudes and longitudes to create a map
with the locations of different crustal features.
Mountains – Green
Volcanoes – Red
