What did Wegener notice about the map of the world?
What was his theory and what evidence did he find to support it (think about fossils and rock types/rock layers. Remember to use the names of actual places!).
How did his fellow scientists react to his theory an what was their explanation?
What did Wegener get wrong?
How and when did he die?
When did plate tectonics finally become accepted?
Wegener was laughed at and discredited by his fellow scientists. Let's have a look at the evidence that Wegener has to offer...Use the Google Doc (your own copy) to put together the evidence.
Once you have compiled and understood the evidence, write a 2-3 minute speech, as if you were defending Wegener in a trial called by his fellow scientists. You are aiming to defend his ideas so you will need to refer to the evidence as well as making a convincing argument.
