Plate Tectonics Review Worksheet
1. Define Continental Drift:
1. What are four pieces of evidence for continental drift?
1. Define Plate Tectonics:
1. Two pieces of evidence for plate tectonics?
1. What are the layers of the Earth that we modeled in “Snack
1. What is the lithosphere? Asthenosphere?
1. Explain the mechanisms that cause the plates to move?
1. What is the difference between oceanic crust and continental crust?
Which is more dense? Why does that matter?
Draw a picture of each boundary, us arrows to show direction of the
motion, and label the features:
1. Divergent – mid-ocean ridges
1. Transform (Strike-Slip) - fault
1. Convergent
1. Oceanic vs. Oceanic –trench, island arc, subduction,
lithosphere, asthenosphere
1. Continental vs. Continental – mountains, lithosphere,
1. Oceanic vs. Continental – trench, volcanic arc, subduction,
lithosphere, asthenosphere
