Plate Tectonics Grade 5 Science Worksheets

Earth's structure consists of four layers: crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core.

Earth's Structure


 Plate tectonics theory explains that Earth's crust is divided into tectonic plates which move over the mantle.

Plate Tectonics


Tectonic plates interact at their boundaries, causing seismic activity, volcanoes, and the formation of landforms.

Geological Effects


There are three types of tectonic plates: major, minor, and microplates, based on their size.
