Transcript of this episode

In less than 12 minutes, I summarize the major pieces of evidence we have for the theory of Plate tectonics.  I cover shape of continents, mountain and ages of rocks, earthquakes, volcanoes, trenches and mid-ocean ridges, ages of the seafloor, patterns of magnetic anomalies, apparent polar wandering curves and hot spot volcanoes.

If you want a summary of the theory – you can find a podcast episode that covers the theory here.

If you want a booklet covering the theory and evidence, check out this one – its great idea as a class set.

And finally, if you are looking for activities for students on Plate tectonics, then see what we have in our Member Resources page.
