Science 8: Plate Tectonics, Day 6 of 7
Objective:
Content 01. Plate Tectonics provides a unifying picture
of the dynamic features of Earth’s lithosphere,
accounting for the distributions of plants and animals,
volcanoes, earthquakes, mid-ocean ridges, and the
three basic kinds of faults.
Content 02. Distribution of fossils and glacial deposits
form coherent patterns if landmasses are reassembled
to form Gondwanaland.
Content 03. Magma from partial melting of oceanic
crust rises to form a volcanic arc parallel to a
subduction zone
Content 04. Mirror-image striping of normal and
reversed rock magnetism on the two sides of a midocean ridge reflects episodic reversals of Earth’s

characteristic of one of the three types of plate
boundaries. Earthquakes result from movements along
