Stressed to a Fault!

In groups, they relate the three types of stresses to the types of plate movements and explain how the stress causes faults to form. They create their own models to demonstrate the plate movements.

Lesson Planet has been a great site for me because I teach grades K-6 and some of my lessons are not easy to teach. It has made it possible for me to come with lessons students can understand. This is one of my favorite resources to pull and review from. Thank you Lesson Planet!
