Educational Earthquake Paper Models

In the wake of today's unusual occurrence of a 5.9 earthquake across the northeast, I thought it might be of interest to children on the East Coast to discover how an earthquake happens. Educators (Hello, Carrie!) may find some great educational tools on the State of California Department of Conservation website. Explore them here: Educational Earthquake Paper Models

Canon also has an animated model on their website, pictured above. Canon is a great source for many teaching aids, as well as craft projects.

Star Wars Episode 2 - Jango Fett w/ Jet Pack

Seeking models to fuel my Star Wars addiction, I recently found this incredible looking model of Jango Fett from the Episode Two film, "Attack of the Clones." Remember the fight scene on the planet of Kamino between Obi-Wan and Jango? This remarkable model depicts the bounty hunter using his jet pack to rise above his opponent and fire his pistols. It really looks great and is brought to us by the Print, Cut & Paste website. The PDF/PDO template can be downloaded for free.
