Gondwana Tales, Plate tectonics and Inquiry

In this Inquiry didactic sequence on Plate Tectonics, students are asked to reconstruct the geologic evolution of an imaginary planet by correlating different kinds of data (geographic distribution of fossils, orogens age, seismic regions…) discovering the positions of the plates and the changes suffered by the continents. Though the activity, several classroom dynamics and didactic scaffolds are set to promote dynamics of creation of scientific knowledge and contents sistematization to reach the final goal: to perform a science dissemination video describing the geological history of this imaginary planet.

The activity, a didactic guide, and its materials are available at: https://sites.google.com/a/xtec.cat/gondwanatales/
