Faults: Normal, Reverse, and Strike-Slip
Add a new, super fun activity for introducing or reviewing types of faults. You will need play dough. I find that 3 regular sized containers is enough for 5 groups. I usually have 2 or 3 students in a group. Some mixing of colors in inevitable, but I find that my play dough lasts for all my classes (3 uses with minimal mixing, and that's with 7th graders). My students loved this activity. I used it the day after introducing faults and the types of forces that cause them. Feel free to leave a question if you have one! 2 student pages, 2 pages of teacher answer keys with pictures to guide you. Enjoy!
