The Reading on Plate Tectonics elaborates on the concepts presented in the Activities section of Project Earth Science: Geology, Revised 2nd Edition. This Reading was written especially for this volume with the teacher in mind.

The outer part of Earth is made of huge plates of rock that slowly move. Movement and interactions between plates where they are in contact result in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, volcanoes and mountain ranges, and igneous and metamorphic rocks. The theory of plate tectonics provides a unifying explanation for geological phenomena.
