Teachers can take field trips exploring their own schoolyards which include many geologic features. The US Geological Survey Schoolyard Geology website suggests several ways to explore schoolyard geology, including mapping the schoolyard. This website is filled with activities and examples to turn a schoolyard into a rich geologic experience.
The main purpose of this web site is to introduce teachers to the geologic features on their own schoolyard. We hope to open their eyes to the possibilities for teaching geology to students in a familiar, easily accessible, and personally relevant setting.
The site includes three individual lessons:
Lesson 2 Rock Stories: Describing Sedimentary Rocks
Lesson 3 GeoSleuth Murder Mystery
The lessons are completely independent but can work together as an effective sequence.
