  • Powerful Visual
  • Model Provides Dramatic Visualization of Faults
  • Length 11¾"
  • Width: 3¾"
  • Height: 7⅞"
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.

Great for Elementary Too! - I used this with my fourth grade classes to model sedimentary rock layer formation as well as folding and faulting. Very effective tool!
