Product Description
In this activity students examine 7 lines of evidence in support for the theory of continental drift. Two modes of running this activity are included either assign teams to become expert groups and then teach the material to the entire class, or students can rotate through all the stations.

Includes:
- 7 Station pages (Lines of evidence: animal fossils, plant fossils, paleomagnetism, continental fit, climate in Antarctica, glaciers, rock sequences)
- Student handout (2 pages)
- Teacher and student instructions

Standards Alignment
*HS-ESS1-5.* Evaluate evidence of the past and current movements of continental and oceanic crust and the theory of plate tectonics to explain the ages of crustal rocks.
*MS-ESS2-3.* Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
