Your younger brother is in fifth grade. He comes home and tells you to look at an animation his teacher showed him in geology class.

Review the animation at http://www.wiley.com/college/strahler/0471480533/animations/ch13_animations/animation3.html

After viewing the animation, your brother has a look of disbelief on his face, “C’mon, really? Our whole continent moves? That’s bogus!” Instead of blowing him off like you usually do, you decide to sit down and educate him about plate tectonics. First, you provide him an overview about two historical figures that contributed to the plate tectonic theory. Then you decide to show him how the plates move by boiling a pot of water, which is shown on p. 108, and relating it to mantle convection and plate movement.

Write a 200- to 300-word summary about the two historical figures and the process of mantle convection and plate movement.
