  3. 3. Back in the 60’s…<br />It was discovered that south America and Africa fit together better if you connected them at the eastern border of south America and Africa western border then they’d fit like a puzzle piece.<br />

  5. 5. 225 million years ago…<br />Australia was connected to Antarctica, and stayed connected up to 65 million years ago. <br />Shortly after the separation, Australia started to rotate.<br />
  6. 6. North America&apos;s eastern border used to be connected to Europe 65 million years in the cretaceous period.<br />
  7. 7. India was once connected to Africa’s Eastern Border. It drifted north colliding into Asia creating the Himalayas.<br />
