About This Quiz

If you are a science nerd, then surely you have come across the subject of tectonic plates when studying geology in school.

Here's your chance to find out!

If you are studying the composition and processes of the earth, then it won't be long before you run across the theory of tectonic plates. The theory is crucial to how the earth has formed into what it is today particularly when it comes to continents and landforms. The world hasn't always looked this way, after all, and it won't look the same in millions of years, and that's all because of how tectonic plates operate. 

Do you recall how the process of tectonic plates works? Do you remember which plates are the largest or which ones formed the many landforms we see today? Can you recall the most important names who pushed the theory? 

If you are ready to reminisce on science class, get started with this quiz on tectonic plates and prove you're an expert on the subject!
