Have you ever noticed that the continents on our planet seem to fit together similar to pieces of a puzzle? Each continent is a tectonic plate, that "floats" on the mantle. This STEM Challenge explores the different types of faults involved in the Theory of Plate Tectonics. Learners will research Plate Tectonics and write a collaborative essay summarizing their research, including a drawing of their planned fault models. The team will then embark on the challenge to create 3D models of...
