Grade 9-college. This exciting inquiry-based kit explores how Alfred Wegener used evidence including fossilized flora and fauna, glacial scarring, mountain range locations, continent shape, and climatic changes to formulate the theory of continental drift.

Using this kit, students or teachers position a set of continent-shaped magnets in their present-day locations on a magnet-receptive map board. Then, using the same evidence that was available during Wegener's time, students think critically to rearrange the continents.

The 8-Station Kit is for a class of 32. The 1-Station Kit can be used as an additional station for large classes, as a teacher demonstration, or as a small-group or homeschooling activity. Kit materials are reusable.
 
 
 
 
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way overpriced for what you get. I have been doing this exact lab for over 10 years with my students using construction paper and a photocopied world map. The total cost is less than $1 for a classroom set of 10. All this kit does is replace the construction paper cutouts with magnetic cutouts and a map on a magnetic receptive piece of cardboard. While the exercise is an excellent idea, the price is excessive. In a world where teachers have to purchase most of the classroom supplies, and school budgets are tight - this could be offered at a fraction of the cost.
