Can you imagine what it would feel like if the Earth was to move or shake under your feet? To clarify, when that happens, it is called an earthquake. Earthquakes occur about one time every minute all around the world.

First, Earthquakes occur in the Earth’s crust from five to thirty miles deep. The crust is made of layers of rocks called plates. Cracks in the plates are called faults.

The plates are always on the move, but they only move about six inches a year. Sometimes, as the plates move, they scrape, bump, or drag against one another along the faults and then an earthquake happens.
