This unit introduces students to the development of the theory of continental drift. They will examine the early work of Alfred Wegener and Alexander DuToit, investigate lines of evidence that resulted in the development of the theory, and learn about the final lines of evidence that resulted in the theory's acceptance. There is a set of activities in which the students construct a map of Pangea using ... Full description.
