Introduce your students to plate tectonics with this engaging lab activity. Students take an expedition on which they analyze fossil similarities among the continents using the provided fossil catalog. Then using colored patterns, students compare today’s continental arrangement with their ideas of how the continents were shaped and arranged 100, 200 and 300 million years ago. Student questions challenge them to analyze the connections among the continents and the theory of continental drift and evolution. Kit comes complete with eight brightly colored posters (four sets of five different continents) and The Mystery of the Far-Flung Fossils lab activity book, which contains reproducible student handouts and teacher materials. One kit will serve all classes.
