Massif Mystery

After reviewing plate tectonic theories and the discovery of both the Atlantis Massif and the Lost City hydrothermal vents, earth science learners complete a worksheet and participate in discussions about what the types of rock found there suggest about the creation of the features. This lesson is a sufficient support to any curriculum dealing with seafloor spreading, ocean floor features, or tectonic activity.
