Plate Boundaries, Stresses, Faults
Name: _________________________________ Date: _________ Class: _________
Remember: The Lithosphere is made of crust + upper rigid mantle & plates may be called crustal, lithospheric and/or tectonic plates
Boundary Type:
How/Where does it
happen? (draw arrows)
How is the rock pushed,
pulled or changed?
How does the rock break
after it is stressed?
Divergent Boundary
Tension Stress
Normal Fault
Place where 2 plates
pull away from each
Rock gets _________ in
the middle as it is
Rock ___________ down
as it breaks
(fault is at an angle, so 1 block
lies above the fault {foot wall}
& 1 block lies below the faults
{hanging wall})
Geologic Feature OR
What happens as a result of
the plate movement?
May form ________
____________ on continents
(Ex: Rio Grande in NM) Earthquakes
may occur or volcanoes may form
where magma reaches the surface)
in the ocean (magma/lava “bubbles”
To help remember or
make the connection…
Pulling warm
bubble gum or
silly putty apart
until it breaks
Happens @
different places
on Land & H2O
up through breaks in the crust)
Convergent Boundary
Compression Stress
Reverse Fault
Place where 2 plates
crash/crunch together
Rock is pressed or
Rock is forced
__________ as it breaks
(hanging wall & foot wall are
OPPOSITE from Normal Fault)
Transform Boundary
Shearing Stress
Strike-Slip Fault
Place where 2 plates
slide past each other
Rock is pushed in two
or sideways
Rocks on each side of the
fault _______________
_____________ as they
May form
______________ (folded mtns
= Rockies & Himalayas)
May form _______________
@ Subduction Zones (as denser
oceanic plate dives under less dense
continental plate)
May cause
(when rock snaps from the pressure
build up, Ex: San Andreas Fault in CA)
Trash compactor
Mountain Ranges
= Rock goes up
Subduction =
Sub stem“under”
Trains going past
each other in
directions, shake
the ground
Rock is
“sheared” or cut
“Shears” =
