Objectives:

At the end of the activity most of the students should be able to;

(a) Explain the processes that occur along convergent boundaries (two oceanic plates
colliding).
(b) Determine the consequences of colliding plates.
(c) Perform an activity on the Convergence of Two Oceanic Plates

I. Motivation

Greetings!

Video presentation on the Convergence of


Two Oceanic Plates
II. Discussion

(Present a picture showing two oceanic


plates colliding)
Like the first type of convergent
boundaries discussed earlier,
converging oceanic plates will
cause formation of trenches, and
these trenches will become sources
of earthquakes. Underwater
earthquakes, especially the
stronger ones, can generate
tsunamis. The Japanese term for
“harbor wave,” tsunami is a series
of ocean waves with very long
wavelengths (typically hundreds of
kilometers) caused by large-scale
disturbances of the ocean.

The leading edge of the subducted plate


will eventually reach the mantle causing
it to melt and turn into magma. The
molten material will rise to the surface
creating a volcanic island arc parallel to
the trench. Volcanic island arc is a chain
of volcanoes position in an arc shape as
seen in figure below. ( Figure 11. Cross-
sectional diagram of converging oceanic
plate)

What will happen when two oceanic


plates collide?
(Video presentation)

III. Application

A. Pre-activity
Now before we begin the activity listen
carefully to the instruction.
a) You will be group into 5 groups.
Each group has 4 members.
b) Each member should have a
role/participation in the
activity.
c) After the activity, each group
should present their activity.
d) You will be rated using a rubric.

B. Activity Proper
Objectives:
a) Explain the processes that
occur along convergent
boundaries.
b) Determine the consequences of
colliding plates
Procedure:
a. Study Figure 10 showing a
cross-sectional diagram of
plates that are converging, and
answer the questions that
follow.
(Figure 11. Cross-sectional
diagram of converging oceanic
plate)

C. Post Activity:

1) What are the geologic


processes/events that will occur
because of this plate movement? During the plate movement an
earthquake might occur.

2) What geologic features might form Converging oceanic plates will


at the surface of Plate A? cause formation of trenches.

3) If the edge of Plate A suddenly


flicks upward, a large amount of The sudden movement of plate
water may be displaced. What can cause underwater
could be formed at the surface of disturbance and might result
the ocean? to strong tsunamis.
Generalization

1. What happens when two oceanic Converging oceanic plates will


plates collide? cause formation of trenches,
and these trenches will become
sources of earthquakes.
Underwater earthquakes,
especially the stronger ones,
can generate tsunamis.

2. What geologic features might form Trenches form when two


when two oceanic plates collide? oceanic plates collide.

D. Assessment

The student will be assessed based on


the activity.

E. Assignment

Please bring the following


materials;
 modeling clay
 2 blocks of wood
 paper
