The Theory of Plate Tectonics:. The Lithosphere is broken into separate sections called plates. The plates fit together along cracks in the lithosphere.
Tectonic Plates Large segments of the outer layer of Earth (lithosphere) which drift and float on the asthenosphere.
the continents were once joined together in a single landmass, fossils matched on continents that fit together, and climates were similar.
