As you go through the Blendspace lesson, complete this viewing guide.
Watch “Earth’s Interior and Plate Tectonics” video.
1. Label this diagram of the Earth’s Interior:
3. What are the three kinds of plate boundaries and in
which direction does each move?
Plate boundary:
Plates move: (circle one)

2. What is convection? How does it make the plates move?
4. Explain how the Earth’s crust is recycled?
 Watch “Mr. Anderson’s Plate Tectonics” video.
1. Alfred Wegener looked at the shapes of the
continents and came to what conclusion?
2. Where do geologists find the youngest rocks in the
Earth’s crust?
3. What happens at each of the plate boundaries?
