Shaping the land: model landforms

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Experiment with cross-section models of the Earth's crust. Explore how landforms are shaped over time. Apply geological forces: deposition of sediments, folding, faulting, igneous intrusions and erosion. Work out a sequence of geological events to match example landforms. This learing objects is the second in a series of three objects.

Students model the geological processes that interact to form and reshape the Earth’s crust.
Students understand the geological processes of deposition, folding, faulting, erosion, intrusions, and extrusions.
Students describe the geological history of model landforms by examining geological cross-sections and modelling actions of forces.
