Divergent (Mid-Atlantic ridge, The Rift Valley), Convergent (The Andes, The Himalayas) and Transform (San Andreas fault, Dead Sea Transform). There are some sub-varieties but these are the main ones. This makes natural sense, so there’s no remembering to do, when you have two contacting plates: they can either be pushing together, pulling apart or rubbing past each other. Incidentally, the idea that the giant continents move around all the time, enough to pull apart South America and Africa…
In this simple modeling plate tectonics activity, students will model each of the different types of interactions at plate boundaries. Geology at its best!
