The Earth has different layers, like the crust, mantle, and core. Plate tectonics is the movement of of pieces of the crust. This movement causes earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountains.

The top layer of the earth is called the CRUST. It is only about 25 miles deep. It has deep cracks in it - like a cracked eggshell. Those cracks are called FAULT LINES. The "pieces of shell" are called PLATES, and they actually float on the MANTLE. The Earth's plates are constantly being created or destroyed, as they are pushed together or pulled apart.
