Help students visualize concepts in 3-D.
- Models cover all major aspects of geology
- Display difficult to visualize concepts
- Models can be copied for student use
Provide a multi-learning tool to help students understand concepts from the inside out. The 25 block model patterns include six basic crystal shapes, horst and graben, anticline oil trap, salt dome oil trap, plunging anticline, plunging syncline, monocline, cuesta, soil creep, slump block, artesian well, continental glacier, meander, non-conformity, disconformity, angular unconformity, barchan dune, soil profile, intrusive igneous rocks, and ordering geologic events. The set of patterns is comb-bound and can be used as a copymaster to produce enough for the entire class, or enlarge the patterns to use as demonstration models.
NOTE: Models do not come preassembled. Students and educators are meant to use the patterns and instructions in the booklet to construct the models for educational purposes. Constructed models can then be used as a permanent classroom display.
