Crustal Sinking

Students measure the rate of sinking of a test tube into a beaker of "glop", representing a model of the interaction between the Earth's crust and upper mantle. This task assesses students' abilities to make simple observations, collect, record, and represent data, use a graph to represent data, relate the model t their knowledge of geologic processes, infer from the model why this geologic process occurs, and describe other factors not addressed by the model.
