Organization:Alfred Wegener
Summary:"""""""""Although Alfred Wegener was not the first to suggest that continents have moved about The Earth, his presentation of carefully compiled evidence for continental drift inspired decades of scientific debate. Wegener's evidence, in concert with compelling evidence provided by post World War II technology, eventually led to universal acceptance of the theory of Plate Tectonics in the scientific community.” Check out this website for a series of plate tectonics and fossil activities useful in the classroom."
