Homework Help: 8th grade Science

Posted by M on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 6:09pm.

In the early 1900s, Alfred Wegener noticed that some of the Earth's continents looked like they might fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. He also observed that the continents that looked like they fit together had similar plants, animals, and rock formations. From this evidence, Wegener reasoned that Earth's continents were all once a part of one big super continent.

What type of scientific thinking did Wegener employ to develop his theory?

Inductive reasoning
Deductive reasoning
Skeptical Reasoning
Subjective reasoning

I chose Deductive reasoning

Tell me what you think
