  • 2. 6. mesosphere – the strong, lower part of the mantle between the asthenosphere and the outer core7. tectonic plate – a block of lithosphere that consists of the crust and the rigid, outermost part of the mantle8. oceanic crust – part of the crust made up of basalt (rock)9. continental crust – part of the crust made up of granite (rock)10. magma-molten rock under Earth’s surface11. lava – molten rock above Earth’s surface
