In this activity, students explore the difference between brittle and ductile deformation in everyday materials and how material behavior is influenced by temperature and the rate of deformation. Then, they will apply this knowledge to rocks deformation and how this is related to the occurrrence of earthquakes and mountain ranges at plate boundaries.

In this lesson, students will learn about beach processes and complex beach systems. By participating in a role-playing activity, students will also learn that human efforts to stabilize an unstable environment can lead to complex problems. Students will conduct research to prepare materials for their part of the role-playing activity.
