The continental drift theory
posted by Anonymous on .
Explain how the following pieces of evidence supported the continental drift theory.
a) matching continental margins
b) similar animal fossils in South America and Africa
c) similar rock types and structures in North America and northern Europe
d) magnetic striping in rocks
Information I know is inside the brackets.
( The continental drift theory states that the continents have not always been in their present locations but have "drifted" there over millions of years.)
The question is confusing. How do I answer these question?
The first is obvious. I noted that the similar shapes of the continents when I was in elementary school -- long before the Continental Drift theory became accepted.
There's no other way for the same animal fossils to be found on two continents separated by an ocean than that these continents were once joined.
