Modelling a divergent (constructive) plate margin

The new ELI today is 'Faults in a MarsTM Bar; pulling apart a MarsTM Bar to model a divergent plate margin'.

The activity models the processes which are taking place at oceanic ridges and continental rift valleys, and enables pupils to see that tensional forces can produce “rift valleys”. It is appropriate in both geography and science lessons AND it can be eaten afterwards!
Lots more activities relating to faults and divergent (constructive) plate margins can be found on our website.
