Plate Tectonics - Earth Like a Puzzle - Children learn about plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes at this site in Scripps Institution of Oceanography by Nan Criqui Most people know that Earth is moving around the Sun and that it is constantly spinning. But did you know that the continents and oceans are moving across the surface of the planet? Volcanoes and earthquakes as well as mountain ranges and islands all are results of this movement. Less than 100 years ago, many scientists thought the continents always had been the same shape and in the same place. A few scientists noted that the eastern coastline of South America and the western coastline of Africa looked as if they could fit together. Putting the Puzzle Together...

Parcs Canada – Le coin de l’enseignant - Le Shale de Burgess - Un examen de la faune du Shale de Burgess Un examen de la faune du Shale de Burgess Aperçu : On étudiera et on comparera aux animaux modernes, douze animaux fossilisés du célèbre Shale de Burgess (un site du patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO, situé dans le parc national Yoho). Il s’agit d’un exercice de taxinomie (classification) qui exige une pensée originale. Attentes pédagogiques : Acquérir une expérience de classification d’animaux (fossiles) à partir de leurs caractéristiques distinctives. Durée estimée de l’activité : Entre 60 et 120 minutes Matériel nécessaire et préparation : Pour chaque groupe d’élèves : illustrations (et, si possible, des photographies) de douze animaux fossilisés trouvés dans le Shale de Burgess, énumérés au tableau 1 (voir documents suggérés) un exemplaire du tableau 1 (par élève) des exemplaires des questions à discuter des exemplaires des informations documentaires (guide de classification), présentées ici un *ordinateur, avec accès Internet (optionnel) Information à l’intention du professeur :

The Paleontology Portal Paleogeography: From the Late Silurian through Early Devonian, continental positions changed little. But by the Middle-Late Devonian, continental movement increased, resulting in numerous mountain-building events. By 390 million years ago, North America and Europe collided to form a large continent, called Euramerica, which sat near the equator. The supercontinent Gondwana and the newly joined Euramerica were surrounded by subduction zones on all sides. North American Paleogeography: Most of North America was covered by a shallow sea throughout the Devonian, although some small landmasses were exposed around the continent. Paleontology: The warm, tropical seas were teeming with brachiopods, trilobites, crinoids, ammonites, and tabulate and rugose corals. Two major animal groups colonized the land during the Devonian.
