Why does Earth have a magnetic field, and why does it move with time?

TIA!

It migrates relatively slowly due to the swirling nature of the “fluids” inside the Earth which creates the pole in the first place https://youtu.be/QGTPr3CG6GA

Earth is a giant ball of molten nickel and *iron*, with a thin, crispy outer layer.

As the iron moves around inside, the magnetic field it produces shifts its orientation.
