Our Earth is NOT a quiet place!
We read about volcanoes and earthquakes in third grade. Did you know that the ground you stand on is called the Earth's crust? Did you know that the crust is divided into huge pieces called plates that slide around on top of melted rock called magma? If a crack, called a fault, opens up between two plates, a volcano can form. If the huge plates move too fast along these fault lines, we may have earthquakes!
