Convection Detection

Convection Detection

This Investigation Set is designed for students to explore convection currents and their effect on plate tectonics. The instruction in this set encourages students to synthesize evidence from multiple sources to explain their own observations from experiments as well as phenomena in the natural world. As students progress through this set, they will learn why convection influences the motion of Earth’s plates and why the Earth’s plates move in the first place.
