This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
This lesson pertains to the learning competency that would engage the students to know how the movement of the earth’s plates leads to the formation of folds, faults, trenches, volcanoes, rift valleys and mountain ranges. The activities would enable the students to differentiate the patterns of the movements of the plates and the land formations that resulted in such movement.
This would also help them realize the effect of the movements of the plates to both the biotic and abiotic components of the Earth.
After going through this module, you are expected to:
1. describe the patterns of the movements of the plates;
2. explain how plate movements resulted in the formation of folds, faults, trenches, volcanoes, rift valleys and mountain ranges; and
3. identify the plate boundary in which the land formations had existed.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
If you have any questions in using this SLM or any difficulty in answering the tasks in this module, do not hesitate to consult your teacher or facilitator.
