- Now zoom out on the map so you can see the entire world. How strong was the strongest recent quake, and where was it?
- Note the red lines on the map. How do you think these relate to Wegener’s theories and Plate Tectonics?
- Do you notice any correlation between the dots representing earthquakes and the red lines? Why do you think that is?
