Summary:This report illustrates how four different types of landslides (slide, slump, flow, and rock fall) occur and what type of damage may result. The report is intended to help students and others visualize what causes landslides and some of the possible results of the landslides. Students will come to understand that landslides result from several causes and that the potential consequences of landslides are numerous and serious. Included are the templates for making four paper models, instructions on their assembly, an educator's guide, and animations showing the effects of the four different landslides.
