2) 15 boundary interaction locations indicated by arrows showing directions of travel for each plate.

3) List of 15 plate interaction pairs with all the following for each pair;

a) 2 plate names
b) interaction (convergent, divergent, or transform) @ the indicated location.
c) plate types (seafloor or continent) @ the boundary interaction indicated.
d) 3 pieces of geologic evidence @ the boundary interaction location indicated (earthquake types, volcano types, mountains, rifts / ridges, trenches).

simple instructions:

1) Put your name, period, and date on the upper right corner of the back side of this map. Each person hands in their own hand labeled map, and must explain their reasoning to Mr.J. for credit.
2) Leave the bottom blank space on the front page of your test map BLANK - I need that space for grading notes. -10% if you ignore this requirement!

3) Draw lines on this map of 15 major tectonic plate boundaries. Additional plates with evidence = extra credit (20 = 4/4 potential).
4) Use arrows to indicate the direction of travel of the plates at their boundaries on the map.
5) Label the plates with their names on the map.
6) List the plate names on the back of this map, & describe the surface geology features (locations of mountains, rifts, ridges, trenches, volcano types, earthquake types) which provide evidence for each plate's direction of travel. (unique plate boundry pairs)
7) More credit possible if (#3-6) above are provided for additional plates.
8) Use internet, journal WORKSHEETS & TABLES, text, MyWorldGIS, lab partners, & teacher discussions, class discussions to construct your map and explainations.
9) 90 test points required for L3/4 (names, boundaries, directions, 3 reasons x15). (L4/4 by more plates, boundary arrows, & 3 evidences each.)
10) NO ReTakes! In class ONLY (tests& notes CANNOT leave the room - turn in packet @ 5min warning daily)!
11) Hand in your test with yourapproved notes inside your manilla test forlder, with your name & period on the folder EACH DAY, NOTHING stapled (scanned before grading), full header on each paper BOTH sides used on the exam.

DONE - 2) Simulating Plate Interactions Lab 3.1.1 - Lab Materials Required (all-in-1-pdf) - (p3=skip)

LAB=LS-3.1 (EE-91-95 - Understanding The Question -Think About What Happens @ Plate Boundaries) Work in pairs on the clay models and the SIMULATING PLATE INTERACTIONS sheet (3.1.1) (each person fills out their own plate bounday sheet). and attach it to your journal.

In the PROCEDURE on EE-93, #5, push the clay blocks firmly together so they are fused together somewhat before attempting to pull them apart. Use the wrapping material or paper scraps between clay pieces and table top to reduce friction.

Write out the questions and answer the 3 REFLECT questions on EE-95 & copy the Richter & Mercali Scales (Seismo-Richter-Mercalli GFX) on the back of the SIMULATING PLATE INTERACTIONS sheet (3.1.1), & or on another sheet of paper, and hand in foldeĀ® hambuĀ®ger style, not staples, with full header and title.
