Product Description
In this activity students get to know Alfred Wegener and why and how he came up with the idea of continental drift and the supercontinent pangaea. Students will complete some internet searches to discover what type of fossils Wegener used to help him come up with his hypothesis. Students will find the time period the fossils lived, which continents they were found on, and describe both the current climate and the climate in which they prehistorically lived. Students will also cut out the pangaea puzzle and fit the fossils, and rocks together. After they are done, students in groups will discuss five questions based on the assignment. These questions are meant to drive the instruction that will come later. The discussion is found at http://earthscience.xyz/ContinentalDrift .
