Investigation of Newtonian Forces on Plate Tectonics part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This model-making activity gives students an opportunity visualize Newtonian forces acting on a single point as well as combined forces acting to produce synclines and anticlines in Earth's crust. Students will analyze models to interpret findings of plate movements.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics, Geoscience:Geology:Tectonics

Projectile Motion and Gravity part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a mini lab where students see the effects of gravity on objects falling from a resting state and objects projected out from the same level.
