Product Description
Theory of Continental Drift 'Go Drift' Card Game by Miss Middle School Teacher.

This card set contains common vocabulary and evidence about the Theory of Continental Drift and Alfred Wegener. I use the cards during my middle school Earth unit to play "Go Drift" (A continental drift version of "Go Fish") for reinforcement, or when students finish an activity early and need something to do. They love it!

Students get into pairs or groups of three and deal 4 cards to each person. The rest go in a messy pile upside down between them. On a student's turn, they play similarly to "I have, Who has...". For example, a student might say, "I have the theory that states Earth's continents were once together in one giant landmass. Do you have the word/phrase that matches this theory?" If yes, the student gives the other student the card to win the pair. If not, the student says, "Go Drift!" and has them draw from the pile in the middle. Play continues until all matches have been made. The winner is the one with the most cards.

I've also had students play individually, or in pairs, as a game of Concentration or Memory. This works well, too!
