Why Lesson Planet?
Here is a fine lesson plan on geology designed for high schoolers. Learners use rocks, fossils, and other geological clues to determine the geology of an area. Then, they make recommendations to a fictitious city council about the viability for a subdivision slated to be built on the ground they are evaluating. This small-group activity is sure to pique your charges' educational juices! Each group prepares a report which is given to the city council.
