How Do Continents Split Apart? Crustal Evaluation Education Project. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Investigation.
Stoever, Edward C., Jr.
Crustal Evolution Education Project (CEEP) modules were designed to: (1) provide students with the methods and results of continuing investigations into the composition, history, and processes of the earth's crust and the application of this knowledge to man's activities and (2) to be used by teachers with little or no previous background in the modern theories of sea-floor spreading, continental drift, and plate tectonics. Each module consists of two booklets: a teacher's guide and student investigation. The teacher's guide contains all of the information present in the student investigation booklet as well as: (1) a general introduction; (2) prerequisite student background; (3) objectives; (4) list of required materials; (5) background information; (6) suggested approach; (7) procedure, including number of 45-minute class periods required; (8) summary questions (with answers); (9) extension activities; and (10) list of references. Focusing on how hot spots (dome-like bulges in earth's crust) may account for the three-arm type of rift valley system, models are made to illustrate doming, rifting, and breakup of a continental land mass. Major rivers occupying failed arms along the Atlantic Continental margins of Africa and South America are also named and located. (Author/JN)
