Sea Floor Spreading

Students discuss convection currents in the Earth's mantle, how they form, and how they move as well as the causes of earthquakes. Working in a group, they analyze a color coded World Earthquake Map and try to determine which direction each plate is moving. After discussing their predictions, they build a model of sea floor spreading.
