  • The analogy the author uses to describe how Earth’s continents fit together is…
    • The plates on Earth form a picture like a jigsaw puzzle does.
    • The mountains and volcanoes on Earth are pieced together.
    • The plates on Earth fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

  • Pangaea can best be described as…
    • the seven continents that we know now
    • an area on Earth that contains a ring of volcanoes
    • a giant landmass that existed over 250 million years ago
    • the process by which plates move

  • Which is true about how Earth’s crust is recycled?
    • Earth's crust is not recycled, only created.
    • As molten rock seeps out of weak spots in the crust, volcanoes are formed.
    • When plates slide past each other, creating friction, an earthquake forms.
    • As new crust is created, old crust is forced down deep inside Earth's mantle, where it becomes molten rock again.

  • It is possible that all of the continents will be in different positions in 250 million years because…
    • The tectonic plates on Earth are continually moving at a slow rate.
    • The gravity on Earth causes the continents to move around.
    • Scientist think that the continents will move back into the shape of Pangaea again.
    • All of the above
