Finding the evidence

Wegener's 'Continental drift' meets Wilson's 'Plate tectonics: how Wegener's continental drift evidence matches up with evidence for plate tectonics'.
This new Earthlearningidea asks pupils to sort out which parts of the evidence we now have for plate tectonics that Alfred Wegener knew about in the 1920s.
By doing this activity, pupils will be able to describe the evidence we have for plate tectonic theory today; describe the evidence that Wegener used for his 'Continental drift' theory and discuss why Wegener's evidence might not have been believed at the time.
This is one of many plate tectonic activities on our website.
