100 level students, in groups of 3-6, are provided with small sand-boxes fitted with a single moving end. Each box is filled with different colored layers of sand, grit, and ploymer grains to simulate bedding. Students progressivley shorten the layered section and record various parameters at each stage. Students then plot this data graphically and report back on the evolution of the structure (usually a fold), including it's geometry, scale, orientation, etc. This exercise is designed to encourage patient, careful analogue experimentation and data-recording; a successful exercise is assessed by detailed records and integration of different parameters towards a narrative of the deformation.
