Summary:In this lesson, students will create three-dimensional (3-D) blocks out of paper to learn about the types of faulting that occur at the Earth’s surface and its interior, and explain how earthquakes are generated by fault movement. Step-by-step directions will provide students with the necessary resources to create the final product.
