Questions to ask about faults at any rock face

Today's new ELI is 'Questions for any rock face 8: faults; what questions about faults might be asked at any rock exposure?
This activity suggests questions to help pupils to understand faults seen in field exposures, and the forces that caused them.
At the end of this ELI pupils can:-
- describe the differences between faults and other kinds of fracture;
- distinguish between normal and reverse faults in the field;
- explain how the type of faulting is linked to compressional, tensional or shear forces.
Many more related activities about faults can be found on our website.
