Who's Fault is It?

The students recently completed a project based assessment based on the information they learned about fault lines.  Students were given creative freedom as to what their final project could look like.  Some students chose to make 3D models out of foam, and another group chose to use Google SketchUp to create 3D virtual models.  Students were asked to explain the 3 main types of faults: reverse, normal, and strike-slip.  I was very pleased with the results of their projects.  In addition, the students needed to imagine that an earthquake hit our school and talk about what type of damage it might cause.  Many worked very diligently to create products that they can be proud of.
