THIS
Objective(s):
In your own words, what was the purpose of this lab?
Hypothesis:
In this section, include the if/then statements you developed during your lab activity for each location on the map. These statements reflect your predicted outcomes for the experiment.
Location One: Select two events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a convergent boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Location Two: Select three events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a divergent boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Location Three: Select three events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two continental plates at a transform boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Location Four: Select two events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two oceanic plates at a convergent boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Location Five: Select three events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two oceanic plates at a divergent boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Location Six: Select two events that you predict will be observed. If I explore two oceanic plates at a transform boundary, then I will observe:
earthquakes
faults
ocean formation
mountains
volcanoes
island chains
seafloor spreading
Procedure:
The procedures are listed in your virtual lab. You do not need to repeat them here. be sure to identify the test variable (independent variable), outcome variable (dependent variable).
Reminder: Test variable = the item you are changing or manipulating; Outcome variable = the item you are measuring
Test variable (independent variable):
Outcome variable (dependent variable):

Conclusion:
Your conclusion will include a summary of the lab results and an interpretation of the results. write in complete sentences.
What types of geological events or changes occur at divergent plate boundaries?
What types of geological events or changes occur at convergent plate boundaries?
What types of geological events or changes occur at transform plate boundaries?
Explain how these geological processes and interactions have changed Earth’s surface through the years. Be sure to use evidence to support your answer.
