Program Details


Pre-activities will be emailed to teacher one week before program,

Observe different rock samples or pictures and describe their characteristics. Understand that rocks are identified by how they are formed and their unique characteristics. View Topographical maps and have students hypothesize how various land forms (mountains, canyons, deltas, etc.) may have formed.


Discuss the role geologists play in our society and the various careers available in the field of geology.
- Review the three types of rocks, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic and how they are formed
- Explore the transformations of rocks in the rock cycle
- Identify the characteristics used to ID rocks and use those characteristics and techniques to help identify an example rock.
- Compare and contrast weathering and erosion and their impact on the earth’s surface and landscape.
- Observe an example how water erodes the earth and creates depositions of material.
