This animated geography video lesson explores the East African Rift Valley, a vast break in the Earth’s surface that runs along part of East Africa. It runs more than 6000 kilometres in length and runs through 14 countries in Africa. Learn how this spectacular rift occurred. The valley is situated in a region where three tectonic plates meet. Tectonic plates are large sections of Earth’s crust. Millions of years ago the plates began to move apart because of forces within Earth. Those forces also result in volcanoes. Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro are two of the tall peaks formed by volcanoes in this area. Students will love this engaging and interactive video as they learn more about geographical wonders and landforms.
