Scheduled Classes for K-12 and college
||Field trips are customized to
grade level, although it is recommended that students
have learned about plate tectonics and have discussed
plate boundaries. Elementary and Secondary grades look
for specific offsets and have to record what they find.
College can measure offsets and try to determine if the
rate is the same at each offset.
