Pangaea Cutter and Placemat Set

$3.25 - $38.80

Discuss plate tectonics theory in the time it takes to use a cookie cutter with this set, which includes 1 cutter and 1 placemat. Students press the cutter into flattened modeling clay, remove the non-Pangaea segments, and then layer with scientific evidence such as mountain ranges, fossil record data, or glacial deposits. Combine with the placemat to explore how the world has changed from the Jurassic Period to the present day, and to learn about Alfred Wegener, Henry Hess, and boundary types.
