This site introduces the concept of continental drift and describes evidence supporting it. The role of NASA in investigating continental drift and some of the technology they use to study the geodynamics of Earth are described. Reasons why continental drift should matter to a student are given. There is also an interactive map, glossary, word search game, and a quiz.
