Before the formation of Mt. Everest, the land was flat. The two plates were starting to collide but had't reached the process of subduction.
Look at this pathetic, little mountain. I can climb that thing in less than a hour!
Convergent plates are attracted to each other. They move towards each other and eventually collide. The formation of mountains is caused by convergent plates that collide and through the process of subduction, one plate is forced up into the sky.
That's right! I bet you can't climb me!
This is Mt. Everest! The mountain is 29, 029 ft tall and it's not finished growing! The plates that make up Mt. Everest are still in the process of subduction so the mountain plate will continue to be pushed upwards.
I did it! I climbed Mt. Everest!
This is the story of how the worlds best mountain climber, Jo-Jo claimed he could climb Mt. Everest in less than and hour. Jo-Jo builds a strong competitive bond to the mountain. Do you think Jo-Jo can accomplish his goal?
Jo-Jo walks closer to the mountain and realizes that this journey will be harder than he thought. He gets closer Mt. Everest and he suddenly gets very worried because the journey is tougher than he imagined. Shortly after his discouraging thoughts seemed to fade away, he hears a voice that pushes him to do what he loves, climb! P.S the "voice" is the mountain.
There's no way I can climb this huge mountain! It's impossible.
Through perseverance and the mountain's guidance, Jo-Jo was able to climb Mt. Everest. It took him just under an hour, actually it took him 59 minutes and 59 seconds! You can do anything you put your mind to.
