What evidence or arguments can you provide that will convince our Pangaea skeptic, Allen, that the earth is older than 12,000 years, that Pangaea DID exist 245 million years ago, and that continents really DO move?

Each student gets to respond ONE TIME to the question. You MUST write a one paragraph response. You need to be convincing and correctly provide at least 10 solid facts, measurements, and chapter vocabulary terms in order to land an "A" on the essay.

After you write your essay, you must respond to two other essays. "Good job!" is not sufficient. You must specifically address at least two points in the author's post. Note: This is a graded, on-line essay question response!

NOTE: Your text book is filled with helpful illustrations for this response: Where fossils were found (p. 160); sea floor spreading (p. 162); divergent boundaries (p. 168); convergent boundaries (p. 170); La Brea tar pits (p. 176-177)
