Tectonic Plates 101 | Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis



We learn how tectonic plates cause natural disasters and how continental drift shapes the world. Divergent boundaries, convergent boundaries, subduction zones, and transform faults cause earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis.

We look at animations, photos, and videos and listen to English narration to learn how plate tectonics work. We look at examples of Yellowstone, the Himalayas, Hawaii, California, Philippines, Iceland, great rift valley, japan, Indian ocean, Japan, and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Can seismographs help prevent tsunamis, and what is the Richter Scale? Welcome to Tectonic Plates 101!
