Product Description
This lab will only work if you have Java on your computers. It should work fine on Windows machines.
In this digital Phet lab, students will gain a better understanding of some of the landforms formed due to plate tectonics. They will understand how density affects the plates. Students will compare and contrast different types of crust, oceanic and continental. Students will understand how crust composition determines density of the crust. They will understand how temperature and size of crust affect density. They will know which crust type will subduct, where mountains will be formed and at which boundaries volcanoes are most likely to form. Students will see that divergent boundaries form ridges and oceans and that transform boundaries form ridges and faults.
