Alfred Wegener: Uncovering Plate Tectonics

Greg Young

Publisher: Teacher Created Materials ISBN: 9780743905602

Alfred Wegener studied astronomy and meteorology—and was even a record-holding balloonist—before he became famous for his theories on how the land and seas on Earth were formed and change. These ideas are continental drift and plate tectonics. Seeing that the continents fit together like a puzzle, Wegener proved the theory that all of Earth's continents were once connected. Although his theories weren't accepted until after his death, scientists use plate tectonics to explain volcanoes and many other changes on Earth.

British scientist Robert Hooke built an early microscope and was the first scientist to observe cells and give them their name. Anton van Leeuwenhoek created the best microscopes of his time and used them to study living organisms. Matthias Schleiden, Theodor Schwann, and Rudolf Virchow created Cell Theory, which says that all living things are made of cells; cells are the smallest part of a living thing; and all cells come from other cells.

Stems and stalks hold up plants and give them shape, and also hold the plumbing system of the plant. Leaves are the place where food is made for the plant. Many plants make crops for us to eat.
