Stressed to a Fault!

Eighth graders describe how stress builds up in the Earth's crust by the movement of tectonic plates. 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.

I'm a homeschool mom. I've been using lessonplanet.com and recommending it to other parents in my homeschool group and other homeschool support circles for over a year now. It's easy to search, save, view, move around, very informative ratings, amount of files found in each subtopic. What I like most of all and keeps me coming back is NO SPAM EMAILS. All other sites send constant emails that clog up my real business email... educating my daughter!
