    The best way for you to understand the movement of the plates is to see what they were like 225 million years ago and how they have moved over time. The one huge massive landmass was called Pangae (Pangaea). Here is a link to a site that has 5 maps. It starts back 225 million years and the 5th map is the present. You will see how the continents were all connected or how they fit together. See how the coast of S. America really does fit into the side of Africa.
