This module will provide you with information and simple activities that will help you understand Plate Tectonics based on the distribution of active volcanoes, earthquake epicenters, and mountain ranges on our planet.
After going through this module, you are expected to:
1. describe and relate the distribution of active volcanoes, earthquake epicenters, and major mountain belts to Plate Tectonic Theory. (S10ES – Ia-j-36.1);
2. enumerate ways to ensure disaster preparedness during earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions; and
3. suggest ways by which one can contribute to government efforts in reducing damage due to earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.Science10_q1_mod1_Volcanoes-Earthquakes-and-Mountain-Ranges_v2-aug-5
