Q. How did the land divide into continents?
A. The land sits on top of the large pieces, or plates, that make up the Earths
surface. These plates are slowly moving. Before about 200 million years ago, all
the land was joined to form one big continent, or super continent. Over millions of
years, as the plates moved, the land split and slowly divided into the seven
continents we know today: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe,
North America and South America.

Q. What is inside the Earth?


A. Inside the centre of the Earth there is red-hot, liquid rock. This rock is called
magma. The land and oceans at the Earths surface lie on an outer layer of
cool, hard rock called the crust. The hot magma below rises and sinks slowly in a
layer called the mantle. At the very centre of the Earth is a super-hot ball of iron
called the core.The earths surface is cracked into large pieces, called plates,
which fit together like an enormous jigsaw. There are nine large plates and several
smaller ones.

means that at any one time, half of Earth is facing the Sun and has daytime,
while the other half faces away from the Sun, so it has night.

Q. Why does Earth have seasons?


A. Earth has seasons because it is titled at an angle. This means that as it orbits

same time, the southern hemisphere, or bottom half of the Earth, is pointing
away from the Sun and this area experiences its winter.
