Mapping Plate Tectonic Boundaries part of Cutting Edge:Geodesy:Activities
This activity asks students to explore a National Geographic map showing Earth's plate tectonic boundaries. The exercise lets the students examine relationships between plate tectonic boundaries and geologic features, and asks them to identify geologic hazards associated with different plate tectonic settings. It is a useful introduction to the theory of plate tectonics and allows the students to explore both well known plate boundaries and those that may be more obscure.
