Activity: A Plate Tectonic Puzzle

Objectives Students will: • use logic and the evidence to reconstruct the position of large islands and continents as they appeared 220 million years ago. • understand the theory of continental movement and plate tectonics. • describe how scientists use different kinds of evidence to form theories.
