This page consists of two maps of the world, showing how earthquakes define the boundaries of tectonic plates. Volcanoes are also distributed at plate boundaries (the "Ring of Fire" in the Pacific) and at oceanic ridges. It is part of the U.S. Geological Survey's Cascades Volcano Observatory website, which features written material, images, maps, and links to related topics. Full description.

In this activity, the Earth's crust and mantle are compared to the shell and insides of a boiled egg. A computer simulation is provided in which students can click and drag crustal "plates" to form various types of plate boundaries. Brief descriptions of the boundary types accompany the simulation.
