Glacial Geocaching

Eighth graders measure strike and dip of given land features and explain the difference between them. They also look at rock and mineral samples for indentification, along with calculating the density. Finally, information is analyzed and collected to prove for a discrepancy in the information. Students are in small groups with each one having a specific job. They identify the rocks and complete assigned tasks in a field setting.
