With the Landform Classroom Demonstration Model for Earth science and geology, show a mountain forming, build your own fault blocks, or erupt a volcano. Get involved and construct models to visualize the forces that shape the Earth.
Show a mountain forming, build your own fault blocks, erupt a volcano—this kit will get your students involved as they construct models to visualize the forces that shape the Earth! Colored flexible foam strips can be bent, arched and folded to illustrate those hard-to-define terms, such as anticline, syncline and hogback. Three simulated cardboard rock formations can be used to demonstrate a strike-slip fault, normal and reverse fault, formation of a graben and a horst, and even show dip and strike. Simulate the eruption of a nonflammable volcano, and demonstrate lava flow with the molded plastic 7" × 7" volcano model. All pieces are included in the kit along with a watertight 20" L × 4¼" W × 2" H demonstration tray and a study guide with illustrated instructions for all activities.
