Continental Drift

Continental Drift (100 Points)

Find two articles (see screenshots below on how to search this topic) and read about Alfred Wegener and his research. After you have read those two articles, find one more additional article or reliable website discussing his Continental Drift hypothesis. In your own words, summarize Wegener’s life, research and difficulties in getting his ideas accepted in his day. Why did his hypothesis encounter such harsh criticism? What were the main objections to his hypothesis? Why did he use fossil organisms like Glossopteris and Mesosaurus instead of fossil sharks or jellyfish? Be sure your paper is 2-3 pages long, cites at least one credible source in addition to the two assigned articles, answers all questions with complete sentences and paragraphs, and follows guidelines for writing and APA style. Your paper must include a title page, be double spaced, and have 1-inch margins.
