1. Plate-Doh Plate Tectonics #24 in Geology Binder

2. What landforms are created by the motion of the lithospheric plates? Essential Question #3

3. Last week… • We defined “plate boundary” as the place where two lithospheric plates meet. • We discussed what happens at the three types of plate boundaries. • We created a color coded map showing the locations of each type of plate boundary.

4. OVERVIEW Goal: To create models of landforms that are created at convergent plate boundaries. DAY ONE: Construct two sides of a lithospheric plate boundary with your table. DAY TWO: Draw a scale model of your plate boundary and label all features. DAY THREE: Use notes and book to predict what features will be created at this convergence. DAY FOUR: Create a model of these new features.

5. First… • Write your code, date, period, and #24 in upper right hand corner of your paper. • Label this assignment “Play-Doh Tectonics” • Make a key at the top of your paper. List the Play-Doh colors and what each color will represent. • PINK= upper mantle= peridotite • BLUE= oceanic crust = basalt/gabbro • GREEN= continental crust = granite

6. With your table… • 1.) ♥ will obtain all supplies needed from Table 1 (by the door). • 2.) ♣ will use scissors to cut your square plate into two rectangles. • 3.) ♥ will pair with ♠, ♣ will pair with ♦. • 4.) With your partner, create a model of a plate! • 5.) At end of period, ♦ will return all supplies to Table 1 and ♠ will carry play doh plates to the cubby.

7. With your partner… • ♠ / ♦ will create the upper mantle by covering the cardboard with pink Play Doh. • ♣ / ♥ Add one flat continent (using green) over top of the upper mantle. It does not have to be in the middle of the plate! • ♠ / ♦ Surround the continent with a thin layer of oceanic crust (blue). Oceanic and continental crust cannot overlap. • ♣ / ♥ Add mountain(s) to the continent, and a few tiny (!) seamounts or tiny (!) mid-ocean ridges to the ocean. • **If time permits, begin (individually) creating scale model drawings of these plates (actual size!)

8. Today… • 1.) ♠ will go to cubby to get plates. • 2.) At your table, put the plates together and decide where the “top” will be. • 3.) Create a scale drawing. • Take turns tracing BOTH plates, as they would fit together, leaving a gap between them. • Label any geographic/geologic features and color your plates using colored pencils and your key. (**Color your plate first, then trade with the other side of the table. **) • 4.) ♣ will put plates back in cubby.

9. Label the different types of convergent plate boundary… • Label the parts of the line that are made with oceanic crust, and the parts with continental crust. Use “C” or “O”. • Using a ruler, separate all the different types of convergent plate boundary. • O/O = Oceanic crust meets Oceanic crust • C/C = Continental crust meets continental • O/C or C/O = Continental meets oceanic (or vice versa)

10. Converging your Lithospheric Plate DAY THREE

11. Predict what will happen at each area!

12. Let’s label each type of convergent plate boundary with the possible outcomes…

13. Oceanic vs. Oceanic Convergent Plate Boundary…
