  • hi my name is Evelyn and im here to tell you about how mountains are made
  • 1 m years 2 m years 3 m years 4 m years 5 m years
  • One thing these methods have in common is that they all take millions of years!
  • Most mountains formed from Earth’s tectonic plates smashing together.
  • the tectonic plates that lie underneath India and Asia crashed into each other over 25 million years ago. What happened? The Himalayas, including Mount Everest, formed
  • a unique type of mountain is made when one plate is pushed below the other, pushing magma to the surface. This is how volcanoes, like Mount Fuji, are made
  • The world is full of incredible rock formations—there’s even an entire mountain range in the Atlantic Ocean
