# Plate tectonics find-a-word

```Instructions:
Read the following passage and fill
in the blanks.
Some words may be used more
than once!
All the words you will need can be
found in the wordsearch puzzle.
The Earth’s outer surface or _ _ _ _ _ is made up of a number of _ _ _ _ _
_.
Heat from the outer _ _ _ _ causes _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ currents in the
_ _ _ _ _ _ which is like a very thick and sticky liquid.
When these currents rise up to the meet the crust they tend to drag the _ _
_ _ _ _ apart. This happens in the middle of the oceans, often you will
find underwater _ _ _ _ _ _ or islands such as Hawaii.
Where two _ _ _ _ _ _ rub against each other, you will find an
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ zone.

The Earth’s outer surface or crust is made up of a number of plates.
Heat from the outer core causes convection currents in the mantle which
is like a very thick and sticky liquid.
When these currents rise up to the meet the crust, they tend to drag the
plates apart. This happens in the middle of the oceans, often you will find
underwater volcanos or islands such as Hawaii.
Where two plates rub against each other, you will find an
earthquake zone.
