Scientist believe that the continents will come back together at one point but that will take 250 million years. Our continents are moving at 2.5 centimeters per year.
Continental drift is a theory that explains how the crust of the Earth moves. The theory was made is 1912 by Alfred Wegener.
The plate tectonics is a theory that the Earths crust is divided into several different plates that move over the mantle. The theory was made in the 1950s through the 1970s.
The plate tectonics are like a conveyor belt. But some plates move faster then others. When the plate gets pulled under another plate it goes faster the farther it goes.
