Figure Skating is a sport where there are many levels that you progress into by competing with other skaters in your level. In each level there are a certain amount of requirements that you need to preform in front of judges. Its also a very graceful sport.

Speed Skating is a sport where people compete on your speed. You don't have required elements, you just skate around the rink to see who is the fastest. Also speed skaters and figure skaters have different types of blades and boots.
