    Plates at our planet's surface move because of the intense heat in the Earth's core that causes molten rock in the mantle layer to move. It moves in a pattern called a convection cell that forms when warm material rises, cools, and eventually sink down

    Tectonic plates move because of high heat from the inside of earth. This causes the mantle layer of the earth to move, so that the tectonic plates are rubbing again'st each other.
