Background

Annotation

  1. Cut the map out of the sheet of paper.
  2. Write divergent boundary along the three divergent boundaries already annotated on the map.
  3. Plate 2 is being subducted under plate 1. To visualize this, make a cylinder of your paper so the two opposite edges touch.
  4. Draw and label the appropriate convergent boundary symbols on the boundary.
  5. Plate 4 is being subducted under plate 1.
  6. Draw and label the appropriate convergent boundary symbols on the boundary.
  7. For plate 4 and 6 draw and label the appropriate boundary features.
  8. For plate 3 and 5 and label draw the appropriate boundary features. Again, make a cylinder of your paper so the two opposite edges touch.
  9. What boundary types exist among plates 2, 5 and 6? Draw and label the appropriate boundary features.

Drawing Boundary Cross-sections

Draw and label the boundary cross-sections between:

  1. Divergent plate 1 and plate 2.
  2. Convergent plate 1 and plate 2.
  3. Convergent plate 3 and plate 5.
  4. Transform plate 2 and plate 6.
