What Is an Earthquake?: Dip Slip and Crustal Dimensions
When plate tectonics causes part of the Earth's crust to compress, as in a zone of collision, or to extend, as in a zone of rifting, faults must form to help accomplish this task. While the deeper layers of rock, due to...
Strike Slip and Oblique Slip
This page provides an introduction to strike-slip and oblique-slip faults, including brief written descriptions and animated diagrams showing the relative sense of motion on these faults.
In this activity, students use a pan filled with wet sand to simulate soil liquefaction. When the pan is tapped, a brick placed on the sand will tilt and sink, as a building constructed on wet fill would.
Seven Paper Models that Describe Faulting of the Earth
This site shows how to make paper models representing simple faults and illustrating some of the landforms associated with faulting of the Earth's crust.
Teaching About Plate Tectonics and Faulting Using Foam Models
This teacher's guide provides directions for building three-dimensional models from foam blocks to demonstrate plate tectonic principles, plate boundary interactions and the geometry and relative motions of faulting of...
