Earth's continents are thought to have formed through a process called plate tectonics. This process involves the movement of large, rigid pieces of the Earth's lithosphere (the crust and upper mantle) over its asthenosphere (the molten upper part of the mantle). As the plates moved over long periods of time, they collided and split apart, forming the continents as we know them today. These collisions and splits also created mountains and oceans and caused earthquakes and volcanoes.
