Product Description
Great for elementary and middle school as an intro to new material. In this article, student will read that Alfred Wegener was one of the first people to suggest that the continents moved, based on the fit of the continents. At that time he suggested that they slowly floated on the water, but was heavily criticized for his ideas. It wasn't until after his death that we discovered he was on the right track!

Vocab Words: Alfred Wegener, fit of the continents, continental drift, pangea
