Has the Earth always looked the same

These maps show how Earth’s land and sea looked in the past. To fit everything on them, Earth has been drawn as an oval. For a long time, all land was joined together in one giant mass. Over millions of years it broke up into smaller pieces. They turned into today’s continents. 

Is it true?

The continents are still moving.

YES. The continents move about 4 centimeters each year – the length of little finger. Millions of years in the future, Earth will look very different from today
