Rock N' Time: Learning Geology at Lory State Park
A 35 -45 minute outside EE discussion and activity for grades 2-6th with capability to adapt "lecture" information and activity to other locations and modified text. Group discussion is about local geology with rock samples. Activity involves 9 students (each time)demonstrating 9 periods along a timeline from planet's beginning to today. Great to follow this with an age appropriate hike.
