EARTHSCIENCENAME:MEGANBAILEYPHET:PLATETECTONICSPER:30232DATE:6/26/19Go to the PhET website.Select the Plate Tectonics Simulation under Earth ScienceSpend a few minutes exploring the simulation.Don’t worry, you can’t break it.Select the “Crust” tab at the top of the simulation.Under view select “Both”.1) What are the 3variablesthat can be changed in this simulation?(Scale orzoom is a nice feature, but not a variable.)
2) Try to duplicate the continental crust as accurately as possible.Show on thediagram where you set each variable.(In other words, draw where you mustmove the slides.)3) Try to duplicate the oceanic crust as accurately as possible.Show on thediagram where you set each variable.4) In terms of the three variables you have investigated, describe howcontinental crust differs from oceanic crust.
Select the “Plate Motion” tab at the top of the screen.Under view select“Both”.
