Plate Boundary Travel Brochure
DUE DATE: Monday, April 28th, 2014
Now that you’ve had a chance to look globally at all of the plate boundaries, I’d like you to focus in on
one location and explore it in depth. Your assignment is to create a travel brochure that describes a plate
boundary that interests you. Your main resources for this information are series of websites that provide data
about plate boundaries, including many of the sites from which the data on your maps was gathered. The
websites are all available as links through my webpage.
General Expectations: (PLEASE SEE YOUR GRADING RUBRIC FOR MORE SPECIFICS)
________ Body text is typed in 12-point Times New Roman font. (Heading and title text can be
different fonts, but don’t waste space.)
larger and in
________ Body text is organized into multiple headings. (i.e. Facts about the Plate Boundary, Famous Land Features:
Volcanoes, Earthquake Sites, Ridges, Mountains or Trenches)
________All six panels contain text. (Plan to write a lot and then cut out what you don’t need when assembling the
final project.)
________ No more than 4 total images.
________You will be asked to complete a final evaluation rubric assessment upon completion of this assignment.
This will be completed when the assignment is turned in.

Magnetostratigraphy - Magnetostratigraphy is a chronostratigraphic
technique used to date sedimentary and volcanic stratigraphic sections.
Learn about it at this site.

On-Line TUTORIAL: This site was designed to allow students to
interactively learn about Plate Tectonics and related phenomena. There
are learning modules and activity modules. Learning modules are
mostly text with little interaction. Students who function at different levels may use this site. The Southern California
Integrated GPS Network Education Module.

On-Line TUTORIAL: A tour of volcanoes in the United States. It is an excellent tutorial in volcanism. Teachers will find
this site useful as will middle and high school students. This site also includes a great tutorial on Plate Tectonics. United State

PBS: Mountain Maker, Earth Shaker - Move any of the four tectonic plates to start an earthquake, make land masses
collide, spread the seas, or initiate your own continental drift.

Plate Motion - Daily position estimates are determined from satellite signals which are recorded by GPS receivers on the
ground. Data from the IGS, SCIGN, BARD, CORS, BARGEN, and PANGA networks have been analyzed at the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, CA Institute of Technology.. Horizontal velocities, mostly due to motion of the Earth's tectonic plates
and deformation in plate boundary zones, are represented on the maps by arrows extending from each site.
