Students will explore how the discoveries of specific fossils, the geographic fit of the continents, ocean floor magnetic fields, young ocean rocks, and seafloor spreading provide evidence to support the theory of plate tectonics. Footage from Iceland helps illustrate the power of tectonic movement. Other topics covered include continental drift, Pangaea, tectonic plates, plate boundaries, mountain building, folding, faulting, and landforms.
