The Alps- Tectonic Plates
Class: Year 5M Year: 2016 - 2017
The Alps were formed around 30 million years ago, when two tectonic plates collided. As the two plates pushed on each other, the sediment buckled and the Alps were formed. Today we showed how this happened representing the Earth’s layers with four colours of salt dough and two piles to represent the two tectonic plates.
