Earth is the most active of the rocky planets. its surface is constantly changing. the reason why we can be deep inside the planet. at its center, earth has a hot, solid iron core. surrounding the core is a layer of liquid iron. between this layer of earth crust is mantle-a thick layer of rock that is so hot it acts like melted plastic. earth crust is broken into huge sheets called tectonic plates that ride on top of the gooey,elastic mentle. as these plates colide and pull apart from one another, the ground shakes, volcanoes erupt, and rise mountains up.
