5. How does the orientation (direction)
of folded mountain belts compare with nearby zones of
volcanoes and earthquakes?
6. What do chains of folded mountains tell
you about Earth's crust?
Now think about what each of the three features you've
examined indicates about Earth's crust. Consider what
Earths crust is like in areas where all three
of these features occur together. How are areas where
these features occur different from areas without volcanoes,
earthquakes and mountain belts? Examine the patterns
on the map and visualize a mental model of Earth's crust.
7. From your examination of the data, describe
your mental model of Earth's crust.
8. On the world map on your student answer
sheet, outline the areas where Earth's internal heat
escapes and solid rocks move against other solid rocks.
Show folded mountain belts and draw arrows to indicate
the direction in which pressure was applied to form
