  1. I thought the video didn’t fully help me to understand contintial drift and plate tectonics however, it did help me obtain more information on the topic than what I knew before

    • Well Robbie, Rome was not built in a day and if you understood more than you did yesterday – Good Job. You really need to finish your ocean web site and you could embed a video that explains continental drift and platetectonics better on your site! I added another video for you!

  2. ummm mr. borden..? am i supposed to make yet another account to post a voicethread..?
    sorry im writing about this as a comment on these videos..(ill go back to them in a little) hahh

    • yes, you need a voicethread account

  3. i did not know that volcanoes are formed that way.

  4. i didn’t now volcanoes were made from small cracks.

    • cool you learned something

  5. hi mr borden! i dont really understand the voice thread thing and my dad is crazy you should call him up and say the world will not end on 2012!

    • well I am not a prophet so I cannot say for sure, but I think the chance of earth ending in 2012 is unlikely. Solar storms, earthquakes, maybe another tsunami but no end of world. Tell your father I am more afraid of N. Korea and Iran blowing the world up than a cataclysmic event on Dec 21, 2012 during the galactic alignment. I think you need to keep studying hard to go to college in 2015. Can I bet him? I guess I wont have to pay if He is right!

  6. hmmm…. very interesting (:

  7. this help me understand more about this standard

    • cool, good job jessica!
