Describe the Processes Occurring at this type of boundary
Identify the Physical Features & Phenomena that occur
at this type of boundary (e.g. volcanoes, mountains,
rifts, earthquakes, etc)
Based on the information that you know about the types of plate boundaries and the physical features or phenomena likely to occur at each type
of boundary, you will make predictions about where on Earth you would expect to find volcanoes, mountain ranges and earthquakes.
On the map below, identify three places where you would expect to find volcanoes. Mark the locations on the map using a symbol. Then list each
location and explain why you think a volcano would be likely to exist there.
