How did Pangaea get separated into 7 different contenints?
Pangaea was sepearated into 7 different continents because of "plate tectonics". Basically, that's just a big fancy phrase that means underneath the earths crust, there are a bunch of huge "plates" floating in the lava. These plates shift, which causes earthquakes and volcanoes, and sometimes it even causes land to break apart, which is what happened in the case of Pangaea.
There are actually 7 continents not 6. Asia Africa North America South America Antarctica Europe Australia The earth's crust floats on earth's mantle and the crustal is moved round the planet by convection currents in the mantle. Sometimes the bits of the crust are brought together into a super continent (this has happened in the past and this continent was called 'Pangaea') and sometimes the crust break up into bits and become separated - this…
Continents are divided on the bases of land( area) and population. There are 7 different continents in the world: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antartica, Enrope and Australia( off course they are mentioned in largest to lowest). If we consider only 6-continent world, then the Euroasian(Europe and Asia) is the largest. The continent are separated either by water, land.
it was wrong because he didn't explain how we moved from Pangaea to all 7 different continents. But then this guy named Arthur Holmes figured it out and knows why his theory was wrong. i am only 11 yrs old in 6th grade and how old are u? u need to check a middle school book to figure that out!!!!!!! loser!!!
The Pangea puzzle is the theory of the beginning of the continents. It's how the Earth started out. Well it is the theory of how the continents came to be. The legend has it that way back in time, there weren't any continents. There was just one large landmass. Until it started to spread apart. That is when it was no longer just one piece. But there were 7 different landmasses. Over hundreds of thousands…
Large masses of land that are on the earth. They are separated into 7 different ones: North America, South America, Australia, Antarctica, Europe, Asia, and Africa. They continents are divided up into countries. In North america the countries are Canada, United States, Mexico, and the central american countries.
