Engaging and effective NGSS plate tectonics activity! This is a quick yet very fun activity to support middle school students' understanding of the EVIDENCE behind continental drift and seafloor spreading. They are given actual historical quotes about what was said against Alfred Wegner when he proposed the theory of continental drift. They are then challenged to come up with 3 of their own quotes to support the idea of continental drift. At the end, take it further buy having kids read their quotes to the class in funny voices. Kids love this activity!
