- Students will relate continental drift to seafloor spreading.
- Students will understand the role of mid-ocean ridges in seafloor spreading.

About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will use a simulation to explore the relationship between continental drift and seafloor spreading.
As a result, students will…
- Measure the distance between South America and Africa over a 120 million year time span.
- Understand how the age of the ocean floor relates to its distance from a mid-ocean ridge.
