STEAM PROJECT Tectonic Plates Board Game

Question Answer
1. What happens when 2 tectonic plates collide together? They create MOUNTAINS.
2. What happens when tectonic plates spread apart? They make EARTHQUAKES and cause ocean water to fall into the hole between the 2 tectonic plates.
3. How do volcanoes form? When Tectonic Plates are pushed together, they create mountains that then push the Magma out of the surface.
