A song about plate tectonics written for my students.

Tectonics in Action
Words and music by Ms. Whatley

Chorus:
Am-F-G-C
Splitting, sliding, sinking, colliding
Am-F-G-C
The Earth comes together and then starts dividing
C-F-G-D
Like pieces of a puzzle, tectonics in action
C-F-Dm-G
Convection in the mantle, it’s just a chain reaction

V1:
Am-D-Em-C
When continents collide we call it convergent
Am-D-Em-C
Mountains up high or oceans submerging
G-D-Dm-Am
When water meets land we call it subduction,
C-F-Dm-G
Better watch out for the volcanoes’ eruption!

V2:
Am-D-Em-C
Divergent is when the plates start to spread
Am-D-Em-C
Then new crust is formed in its stead
G-D-Dm-Am
Mid-ocean ridges form down the center
C-F-Dm-G
And rift valleys tear the land asunder

Chorus

Bridge:
A-F-G x3
Ahhhh
A-F-D
Ahhhh

V3:
Am-D-Em-C
Transform boundaries slide past one another
Am-D-Em-C
This creates tension, and makes the land shudder
G-D-Dm-Am
If you feel an earthquake, you better just halt –
C-F-Dm-G
Don’t blame me, it’s the Earth’s fault

Chorus – End on C
