Seafloor Spreading, Continental Drift, Plate Tectonics

Continental Drift

Continents That Have moved slowly to their current locations. Wegener suggested that all continents once were connected as one large landmass that broke apart 200 million years ago. This Information cam out of my Flip Book on Continental drift, Seafloor Spreading, Plate Tectonics.

Plate Tectonics

Plate Tectonics...

Plate Tectonics is when the plates move Apart and the lava underneath pushes up and it hardens and it causes new plates to form and that's called plate Tectonics..

Seafloor Spreading

Seafloor Spreading Is A process that occurs at mid ocean ridges, where now crust is formed through volcanic activity and then gradually moves away from the ridge. This is the definition of Seafloor Spreading.

Convergent Divergent and Transform

Convergent- Move Together

Divergent- Move Apart

Transform- Slide Past each other rocks catch, Tension builds up then breaks and it causes and earthquake.
