The Earth: Moving & Growing

Water, ice, acids, salt, plants, animals, and changes in temperature are all agents of weathering.

an opening in Earth's crust that allows hot, melted rock, ash, and gases to erupt. Convergent and Divergent boundaries often form volcanoes.Four types of volcanoes:1. Stratovolcanoes2. Shield Volcanoes3. Pyroclastic Volcanoes4. Lava domes

Convergent Plate Boundary: formed by tectonic plates crashing into each other. Divergent Plate Boundary:formed by tectonic plates pulling apart from each other. Transform Boundary:formed as tectonic plates slide horizontally past each other.

Weathering

The Earth:

Weathering is the breaking down or dissolving of rocks and minerals on Earths surface. Water, ice, acids, salt, plants, animals, and changes in temperature are all agents of weathering.

Volcanoes

the sudden shaking of Earth's crust caused by the release of energy along fault lines or from volcanic activity.

Types of Earthquakes

Erosion

part of Earth's surface that rises above the surrounding land by great forces of heat and pressure deep within Earth.
