Plate Tectonics

We were going to build on and deepen our knowledge, but for the time being, let's see what we remember from our prior learning and consolidate it.


The world is a dynamic place and the surface of the earth (and the layers underneath it) are no different. Everyday the crust is moving in different directions, but we are not aware of this until there is either a volcanic eruption of earthquake.  The movement of the earth's crust is known as 'Plate Tectonics'.


What does the word 'tectonic' mean?
