Plate Boundary animations

(Updated to fix incorrect link.)

Here are the plate boundary animations I showed you in class today. You should also review the diagram on p. 34-35. Good luck on Monday’s quest!

Continental Drift: drag the continents to see how they fit, or click the arrow to watch Pangaea form.

Basic Plate Boundaries: a basic illustration of a (ocean to ocean) divergent boundary, a (ocean to continent) convergent boundary, and a transform boundary.

The Process of Rifting: watch a rift valley form (continent to continent divergent boundary)

    It’s really cool to watch the process of Pangaea changing into the continents we know today, and the continents even look like they fit together.

    Ha. Did anyone realize that you can try and place the continents in the right place to form Pangea.
