Science with Tom, created a modern video reenactment of a historic scientific debate between Alfred Wegener and the Fixists. Here they each argue, in a rap battle format, about continental drift. Having students create videos, as a way to teach others, is a great way to make learning meaningful. There is also value in showing this video in a classroom, as it provides multiple ways for students to learn this information, as some learn best through song and by watching skits. Showing short video clips can be a way to prime student interest at the beginning of class. For another great song about continental drift check out the Amoeba People.
