About this title


This is the BLACK AND WHITE paperback edition of the book. It is also available available in color paperback and Kindle editions.

What do ancient reptile fossils have to do with radioactive atoms deep inside the Earth's mantle?

What causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions? 

Why are there strange creatures living deep beneath the ocean surface, where hot water and chemicals spew out of cracks in the ocean floor? 

The answer to all of these is the same: plate tectonics. Over the last century, scientists have discovered how heat generated deep inside the Earth drives movements of the mantle and crust - and how in our Solar System, this process is almost unique to our home planet. This is real, cutting-edge science, written for kids! Best of all, activities at the end of the book bring the science to life: experiment with how temperature changes density, build your own compass, and put Earth's continents back together to see what the world looked like hundreds of millions of years ago.  

Judith Hubbard is a geology professor with a Ph.D. from Harvard University and a B.S. from Caltech - and also two young children. She started the In Depth Science series with the goal of making college-level science accessible to kids as young as eight years old.
