Extra Credit Paragraph: Plate Techtonics

My favorite unit we learned in science was plate techtonics. I liked learning about the different layers of the earth and what each of them ar made of. I also liked learning about how the mantle can create subduction and sea floor spreading. Most of all, this is my favorite unit because most of our units revolved around plate techtonics. During this unit I learned about Alfred Wegener and his theory of the world once being a big piece and how each continent represents a puzzle piece. I also learned about subduction and seafloor spreading, and of course, the layers of the earth. My favorite lab in this unit were cutting open an egg to demonstrate how it relates to the layers of the earth, and also using Snikers to show how it can relate to the continents spreading.
