What evidence is there that the plates are moving?

Have you noticed how the continents look like a puzzle? Or how about when earthquakes happen it looks like part of a shape? There are two types of plates. the first is oceanic. The second is continental. Alfred Wegener created the theory of continental drift.

Erosion Around the World

What is erosion?

Erosion is the destruction of the landscape bit by bit by three main types. The first type is wind. Wind can blow away bit by bit of dirt, sand, and small rocks. The second type is water. Water eats away at everything it can get to. The final type is ice. Giant glaciers can cut into the landscape creating new terrain.

Minerals

Minerals can form in two ways. The first is by evaporation. The second is by hot water solutions. We identify them using these tests: color, streak, luster, density, hardness, crystal systems, cleavage, and fracture.
