Evidance #4Earthquakes Earthquakes are proof that plates move because, Earthquakess are caused by plate movement.

Evidance #8Blocky Lava Block lava is proof that plates move because it has silica in it and silica caused pangea, a super continet, formed over 100 million years ago by explosive volcanos.

Evidance #7Horn Blend Horn blend is proof that plates move because it is used to find water in minnerals.

Evidance #6Ring of fire The ring of fire is proof that the plates move because all the volcanos are on the boarders of plates and volcanos wouldnt be able to form if the tectonic plates dont crash together.
