This Tectonics Model demonstrates the principle of superposition and the concepts of transgression, regression, and compression.
- Powerful visual
- Model provides dramatic visualization of faults
- Length 11¾"
- Width: 3¾"
- Height: 7⅞"
- Aligned to NGSS standards (MS/HS: ESS1, ESS2)
Students can construct a logical sequence of five sedimentary layers in a compression box then apply a convergent force with the plunger in the box to explore each concept.
The applied force causes the layers to fold and fault. It includes instructions and all materials.
The kit is also available for purchase with a link to a NewPath digital lesson, which includes a variety of resources on the topic, including background information, illustrations and self-assessments.
Accessories information: Replacement sediments available.
