Bending "Rocks" Lab
Statement of the Problem
What will happen when we move the sponge like the plates move on the earth?
-divergent, convergent and transform
2. Give three characteristics of each type of plate movement.
-Divergent plates: plates are dragged apart, they make cracks, and magma rises up between the cracks.
-Convergent plates: plates collide, the crust breaks, very destructive.
-Transform plates: plates slide against each other, makes earthquakes, the plate movement causes friction.
