One World Poster

#10012
Overview

Create a replica of Pangaea.

Following a unit on plate tectonics and continental shift, instruct students to research the formation of Pangaea to recreate the supercontinent. Consider fossil records and studies of the continental shelf when examining the formation of Pangaea. Bring attention to how the continents once existed and eventually shifted over time to form ridges and mountain ranges. Examine the effect of seismic, volcanic and geothermal activity along plate boundaries. Challenge students to consider the cultural implications of being connected as one world. Realize that as continents drifted apart, societies evolved and various cultures emerged over time. In the end, we are all connected as members of one world.

Grade Level: 3-5

Research the formation of Pangaea and assemble continents to demonstrate how the world was once connected.
