Effects of Moving Tectonic Plates

What makes the ground shake during an Earthquake? Could one happen where you live? What about a volcano? Why do some erupt, and some don’t?

One of the cool things about tectonic plates is that they move in different ways. In this section, you will learn about the different types of movement at plate boundaries. You will also learn about how volcanoes form, and what causes earthquakes and tsunamis.
