Continents/oceans pattern versus pattern of life on Earth

Todays new ELI+ is all about how the link between continental patterns and life on Earth can be explained? - 'The pattern of continents/oceans versus the pattern of life on Earth'

This is a modelling task, involving drawing and counting, to enable pupils to visualise the effects of different numbers of continents on global biodiversity. The activity enables pupils to account for the findings in terms of the effects of differing numbers of continents and areas of shallow sea on evolution and extinction.
Other activities related to the evolution of life can be found on our website.
