Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Simulate the amazing process of sea floor spreading and continental drift over geological time using this hands-on activity model! Students use the detailed model to observe the forces that push the tectonic plates apart and cause continental drifting. They then recreate the processes that led to the expansion of the ocean over the past 150 million years by taking visual “snapshots” of the Earth as it evolved through the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods and into the Cenozoic Era. Includes thorough detailed background information, step-by-step procedures, student worksheets, complete teacher notes with sample data and answers to all questions, and enough materials for 30 students working in pairs.
