In this media-rich activity designed to enhance literacy skills, students learn how the theory that explains the position of Earth's continents was established and later modified, and gain important insights into how science and the scientific community operate. As students work through this activity, they watch videos and work out their ideas in a Flash Interactive where they write their answers in text boxes. At the end of the activity, they can print out their notes to help them complete the final writing assignment. A teacher's guide and correlations to science and English/Language Arts standards are also provided.
