Subduction Zone Earthquakes part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend several characteristics of subduction zone earthquakes. By plotting earthquake epicenters on the simulated overriding plate, students observe the difference between focus and epicenter. The model also provides opportunities for students to interact with the data to determine the relationships between distance from the trench, focus depth, and earthquake magnitude. Furthermore, the model allows students to explore the relationship between subduction angle and the locations of earthquake epicenters.

Seasons part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend the Earth's position in space, the Earth's rotation axis and seasons. Students use the model to observe changes in insolation between the equator and poles, and explore the relationship between axial tilt and seasonal changes.

Plate Kinematics part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend the dynamics of plate kinematics. Students use the model to observe key characteristics of plate formation and subduction. Students can also model different tectonic scenarios such as continental rifting.
