Discovering Continental Drift for iOS

By DK Tasa $2.99

Developer's Description

Discovering Continental Drift introduces students to Alfred Wegener and his continental drift hypothesis. This continental drift hypothesis provides the groundwork for learning about Earths dynamic surface and the theory of plate tectonics.

By examining evidence from fossils, rock types, mountain ranges, and climate students follow the development of the hypothesis.

Along the way, students are encouraged to answer essay questions that involve critical thinking skills. The students answers are saved (in a notebook) and these entries may be shared.

Quiz questions are used to assess student understanding; quiz answers and scores may also be shared.

To reinforce concepts, an interactive, fictional planet activity simulates the observation of fossils, mountains, and climate to determine how continents were joined before the breakup of a fictional supercontinent.
