Have you ever had a Seymour's casserole? It has a layer of graham crackers on the top, then a layer of chocolate, then a layer of marshmallows bake this and you've got a plate of gooey goodness. You've also got something that looks a lot like the Earth's crust.

Scientists have named this the theory of plate tectonics.
