        Life on Fire: Tectonic Volcanoes

        Students will learn that the Lithospheric plates on the scales of continents and oceans constantly move at rates of centimeters per year in response to movements in the mantle. Major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building, result from these plate motions. Understand how convergent and divergent plates can produce volcanic activity at subductive plate boundaries and mid-oceanic ridges.
