Very handy - the different colored sands stood out very well while demonstrating the movements.

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!

Basic Tectonics Model
Models Geology Models
This Tectonics Model demonstrates the principle of superposition and the concepts of transgression, regression, and compression.

  • 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.

Accessories information: Replacement sediments available.
