This activity will enable students to view the breakup of the super-continent Pangaea over the past 190 million years and chart the subsequent movement of land masses, and to better understand plate tectonics. Students are provided with copies of map sheets with frames which are reconstructed maps of the land masses that existed on Earth at a specific time. Beginning with frame 20 and working backwards students identify the land masses listed in an available table. By assigning different land masses to different groups, the students will be able to share their results when the flipbooks are completed and several different continental movements and tectonic interactions will be illustrated on the different flipbooks. All required maps and tables are provided at this site.
