View Resource Earthquake Slip Classroom Exercise

In this activity, students explore the 'stick-slip' mechanism of earthquake generation. They will learn about the concepts of stick-slip sliding, static friction, energy conversion, and the elastic properties of materials. Students work together to develop and test a hypothesis, make measurements, graph and write a short report on the results.

View Resource E-Rock: A Virtual Field Trip

This virtual field trip shows students the geologic features of Enchanted Rock, a dome of Precambrian granite located in central Texas. They can see small faults, fault gouge, close-up photos showing the texture of the granite, and a variety of features produced by weathering.
