  • Geography
    • Restless Earth
      • Collision boundaries occur when 2 plates of similar density move together and collide, causing material to rise up and form fold mountines
      • Constructive plate boundaries occur when 2 plates move apart (due to convection currents). Magma then rises, filling the gaps, and cools/ hardens. This results in volcanoes forming
