Our Amazing Planet. Planet Earth Earth’s Layers Crust Earth’s thin outermost layer. – Continental Crust (land) - thick low density rock (granite). –
Plate Tectonic Theory states the outermost layer of Earth is composed of 9 to 15 large plates and numerous small ones Most plates are located on the ocean.
Theory of plate tectonics. Continental drift hypothesis Before the theory of plate tectonics in the 1960’s, there was Alfred Wegener’s hypothesis of continental.
Composition of the Earth. Earth Layers The earth isn’t a solid sphere It is made of 4 major layers - Crust - Mantle - Outer core - Inner core.
Plate Tectonics. Earth’s Interior Earth is made of layers Crust Upper Mantle (asthenosphere ) Mantle Outer Core Inner Core Scientists discovered these.
Structure of the Earth Crust = solid outermost layer Mantle = middle layer Core = inner layer outer core = liquid inner core = solid.
Spheres of the earth 1.What is the Atmosphere? Layer of gases that surround the earth 1.What is the Biosphere? The part of the earth where life exists.

Boundaries Types. Transform Two plates slide past each other Two plates slide past each other As they slide, earthquakes often occur As they slide, earthquakes.
Plate Tectonic Notes. Lithosphere the rigid, brittle, outermost layer of Earth. Includes crust and uppermost region of mantle.
Chapter 17 Plate Tectonics Part 2. Plate Interactions We have two different types of crust Oceanic Continental We have three different types of.
PLATE TECTONICS. Lithospheric plates Lithosphere is made up of 12 large plates and about 20 smaller ones Plates are solid and float on the asthenosphere.
Processes that shape the planet.. Earth’s Internal Layers The crust (oxygen, silicon, magnesium and iron) The mantle (silicon & oxygen) Outer core (iron.
Plate Tectonics What evidence do scientists have to support the fact that the Earths crust is continuously moving?
Forces Below Earth’s Surface Earth has 3 Layers: Crust, Mantle, Core Crust = 30 miles thick, landmasses and ocean floor Mantle 1,800 miles thick; magma.

Volcanoes Earth and Space Science. How many are there? About 60 of the ~550 known active volcanoes erupt each year There are many more volcanoes underwater.
So what has caused the continents to drift ?? What do you think?
