PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this assignment students will use their knowledge of Alfred Wegener and Harry Hess and both men’s contributions to our modern understanding of plate tectonics to create either a letter or a comic. If students choose to write a letter then the idea is that it is a fan letter from Harry to Alfred about all of Alfred’s accomplishments and what Harry has been able to discover since Alfred’s unfortunate death. Students are given the freedom to change the format of the letter so long as they meet the requirements included on the assignment. If students choose to complete the second option then they will show me the contributions of Alfred and Harry in comic form instead. Students are free to choose whatever format and story for their comic that they would like and examples are provided to help them to get ideas. Students will need a background knowledge in Alfred Wegener’s hypothesis of continental drift and the evidence that he used to support his idea, as well as an understanding of Harry Hess and his use of sonar to study mid-ocean ridges and develop the idea of seafloor spreading.
