Storyboard Text

  •     How are mountain ranges created?
  • Mountain ranges are formed by tectonic plates !
  • You see, Earth is made up of many different plates. Plate tectonics is the process of the plates moving.
  • To create mountain ranges, plates smash against each other in a process called convergent tectonic plates. They make the ground go up like the hood of a car in a car crash.  
  • The mountain then appears. You can think of it as if you had attached the ground to a pulley and that the plattes was pulling it up.
  • The highest mountains are in the Himalaya.
