Remember:
 Places on earth where most of the
earthquakes originated or some
mountains and volcanoes were formed
mark the boundaries of each
lithospheric plate.
 Each plate is slowly moving relative to
each other, causing geologic events to
happen along their boundaries.
Remember:

 Plates are large pieces of the upper few


hundred kilometers of Earth that move as
a single unit as it floats above the mantle.
 As plates interact along their margins,
important geological processes take place,
such as the formation of mountain belts,
earthquakes, and volcanoes.
