Plate Tectonics Quizzes & Trivia

They’re underneath you even at this very moment. There are a couple of them around the world and when they move they rock the entire place. We’re talking about the plate tectonics, of course. We’re going to test your knowledge about the plate tectonics with our following quizzes and we want you to give as many correct answers as possible.

Check out these samples first: How many major plate tectonics are there right now? The lateral relative movement of the plates typically varies from zero to how much annually? Where plates meet, their relative motion determines the type of boundary but how many types of boundaries are there? Answers all these questions correctly and find out everything there is to know about the plate tectonics.
