Random acts of kindness. I haven't told you about that one yet. When we were on the isle of skye last summer we got into a series of really bad weather days. On this one particular day it poured more than I've seen in a long time and we got dripping wet. To our own fault- we had to take photos after all. But yeah we were pretty much out of dry clothes at the end of the day and of course all of the camping grounds and bnbs were booked. Bad luck for us- the Highland games were on this day. We…

Earth Science Unit - lots of hands-on activities to teach how fold mountains are formed, plate movement and earthquakes, and the layers of Earth.

Folded & thrust-faulted shale & limestone of Late Mississippian - Early Pennsylvanian Calico Bluff Formation, on the Alaskan side of the border with Canada, along the Yukon River. Just north of the major strike slip Tintina Fault which makes an old plate boundary between North America and what was the Pacific Ocean. In the Cretaceous a subduction zone and island arc began implacement of igneous rocks which are now extant south of the Tintina Fault.

Full lesson on spong fault models: Students will be able to: Use foam models to demonstrate the forces and relative motions of a block of rock to form of anticlines and synclines; use foam models to demonstrate the forces and relative motions acting on blocks of rock to form normal, reverse and strike-slip faults; use evidence to support or refute the claim made in an argument.
