This two-sided, full-page interdisciplinary worksheet reinforces the definition of stresses that act upon the Earth’s crust and the faults and the deformations that result. There are fourteen sets of jumbled up words. Students’ mission is to unscramble the words to form a coherent sentence in the theme mentioned above. Each sentence is a definition of a key geologic vocabulary term. The problems on the first page lead to shorter definitions under ten words. Most of the problems on the second page are longer, more challenging definitions between ten and fifteen words in length. There is a challenging problem at the bottom of the backside with over fifteen words to unscramble. The terms covered in this activity are a fault, dome, normal fault, lateral (strike-slip) fault, rift valley, fracture, fold, compression, tension, anticline, syncline, deformation, hanging wall, and plateau. This document is editable. A two-sided, full-page answer key is provided with the answers in colored font.
I also have a stress, fault, and crust deformation crossword puzzle, review activity / study guide, and unit test available that complements this review activity.
