Identifying Landforms
Landform models are found in the hallway
I can interpret the movement of crustal plates from a world map showing crustal plate boundaries.
I am done with Module II when ...
I can explain the relationship between volcano and earthquake activities to the boundaries of crustal plates.
I can explain the resulting landforms created at convergent (colliding) and divergent (spreading) crustal plate boundaries.
I can explain how convection currents in the mantle power the movement of crustal plates.
I can examine any major landform on Earth and describe the basic geologic forces responsible for it's formation.
I can explain the forces of erosion and the types of landforms created.
I can analyze a basic topographic map to describe the general topography of an area.
