PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this product is to help students understand how a mantle plume (or hot spot) creates island chains in the middle of a tectonic plate.

After students complete this 20-minute inquiry lab they will understand:
-Earth's crust moves over the mantle,
-Magma can escape the mantle to create unique, volcanic features on the surface,
-Mantle plumes create island chains, which are short lived features because they sink after moving away from the hot spot,
-Mantle plumes are an indication of the direction a tectonic plate is moving

Included in your purchase:
-Teacher to-do list
-Complete teacher instructions
-Student instructions
-Student worksheet
-Suggested answer key

Your Earth Science students will LOVE doing this lab! It is a product I have used and tried with my own students many times, always with great success.

Enjoy!
