Made from thin layers of tectonic plates
Crust
1 of 24
Divided into solid upper part and semi-liquid lower part
Mantle
2 of 24
Consists of a liquid outer core and solid inner core
Core
3 of 24
Two plates collide, one plate gets sub ducted under the other
Destructive

Rising convection currents pull crust apart, magma fills the gap
Constructive
5 of 24
Two continental plates collide forming mountains (Himalayas)
Collision
