Plate Tectonics Songs

Our class created lyrics to some popular songs so that we could remember the different ways that plates move.  We will be recording our songs using Garageband and hopefully we'll create a podcast for you to listen to our songs soon!  Here are the lyrics we wrote with our teams.

Convergent Boundary
Sung to “Nobody’s Perfect” by Miley Cyrus

Here comes a volcano!
It’s coming with magma,
Again and again, til it erupts.
Cause plates are colliding,
They form a volcano,
And convergent is it’s name.
Here comes the lava!
Convergent boundary is it’s name.

Divergent Boundary
Sung to “Disturbia” by Rihanna

Di, di, di, di, di, di, divergent (3x)
Divergent, it likes to pull away
Divergent, it likes to pull apart
Divergent, it likes to pull away
It likes to stay away…stay away
I got to go
The plates are pulling apart
Come on, let’s go
Before the plates start moving away

Sung to “See You Again” by Miley Cyrus

When plates subduct
Volcanoes form
When the earth quakes
The volcano shakes
When it erupts
It goes like boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Subduction is where plates collide
And one plate goes under the other one.
Boom boom boom(echo)

Transform Boundary
Sung to “Barbie Girl” by Aqua

Transform’s where plates slide…
That causes earthquakes
That’s when the ground shakes
It can cause damage
It will be deadly
But just stay steady
But just stay steady.
