Earthquakes, Boundaries, and Plate Tectonics

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today you will become an expert on fault lines and tectonic plates. You will be assigned to an article, and you and your group will create a poster and present the information you've learned. The three types of boundaries you will learn about are listed below. In class, you'll be learning about them with Oreo cookies.

Transform Boundaries
Convergent Boundaries
Divergent Boundaries

On your group's poster, you'll need to include the following:

If you have time at the ed of your work today, create a blog post on your own blog explaining what you learned. Make sure to include a title and a label on your post. 

~ Mr. Moore, Ms. Vander Velde, and Ms. Chavez
