Geology Series Overview

Geology

Geology investigations cover the
rock cycle, stream morphology,
rivers and floods, mass wasting,
plate tectonics, earthquakes,
and other topics.

Geology Series

Students get a great introduction to the earth’s geology with these hands-on investigations of the rock cycle, stream morphology, rivers and floods, mass wasting, plate tectonics, earthquakes, and other topics. Each investigation has learning outcomes for students to master, such as demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of continental drift and the different lines of evidence that Alfred Wegener used to support his theory; design a stream table model to analyze the different characteristics of stream flow; and define what a landslide is and understand the role that slope, gravity, and the angle of repose play when identifying a landslide. All Geology Series kits include a Geology Equipment Kit that contains safety supplies and equipment required throughout the investigations.

  • Mass Wasting
  • Density and Earth’s Structure
  • Earthquakes
  • Rivers and Floods
