What is the large chunk of earths crust?

Earth's crust is broken into sections called tectonic plates.
They each float on the mantle, as part of the Earth called the lithosphere.
Each is separated by highly seismic regions that usually spawn volcanoes.
One of which is the Ring of Fire in the Pacific.
