Wandering continents - continental drift

The new ELI today is 'Wandering continents; what evidence enables us to reconstruct the ancient supercontinent of Pangaea?'

This is a fun activity which can be used with younger children to introduce the aspect of plate tectonics known as continental drift, or as a revision exercise for older pupils. It uses simple evidence from the geological record on each continent to enable a reconstruction of an ancient supercontinent to be made.

You can find many more related activities for all age groups by searching for continental drift or plate tectonics on our website.
