Plate boundaries are the source of some of the largest natural hazards on Earth. In this class, students will examine what makes a plate boundary, where they occur, and what hazards we generally associate with them. Students will focus of the 4 main boundaries: destructive, constructive, conservative and collision. This is a great class for students in Years 10 and 11 revising plate boundaries or to use as a class to get ahead. Natural hazards is a key topic which is common in exam or teacher assessment.
