Convergent boundaries occur when two or more tectonic plates are move toward one another and some colliding.
Below are diagrams of the inside of the earth. Through studying diagrams of the inside of the earth, you can easily learn facts and all kinds of different stuff about the inside of the earth.
In plate tectonics there are three types of boundaries; divergent boundaries, convergent boundaries and transform boundaries.
Below are some Earthquake facts to help you understand and be more familiar with plate tectonics theory. You can use these earthquake facts in a quiz at school or as a game for fun.
The study of earthquakes is a big part of plate tectonics. The movement of Earth's tectonic plates can set off earthquakes in plate boundaries that contain faults.
