More Paper Models -Geology

Back from our vacation!

We had a lot of popular response to our previous blog entry on Paper Model Spaceships, so we thought it would be good to try a few different science-based paper models. This time with a concentration on Geology!

We’ll start off with some free models offered by GeoBlox. In their free section they have many Geology based paper models. They have models like the Jetty (shown),  Earthquake, Platetectonics, and more.

Want something a little more davanced? The Fault Analysis Group of Dublin has a bunch of paper models.  These cover different fault types, methods by which strata appear, and much more.

Other ‘models’ are meant to be placed around round objects, such as this model of  the Earth’s plates that goes around a tennis ball (note direct link to pdf).

Enjoy!
