Using Inquiry to Discover Stream Formations In a Small Stream part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an inquiry based field investigation where students measure and map a small stream and then develop an understanding of the formation of a variety of small stream features.

Determining Bulk Density of Different Soil Samples and Data Analysis part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity combines field exercise soil collection with lab analysis of soil bulk density. Students develop a lab procedure to measure density and analyze data using Microsoft Excel computer software.

Investigating the Geologic History of Southeast Minnesota by Constructing a Geologic Column part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on rock types and geologic formations to construct a geologic column that will help them to interpret the geologic history of the Cannon Falls area.

Disasters to Nature: Sensitivity of Ground-Water Systems to Pollution part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students will observe three areas with high sensitivity to pollution, and test water quality in two of the locations.

What Does Meteor Size Have to Do with Crater Size? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This field investigation involves student dropping various objects into various mediums to find answers to questions that they propose, dealing with meteors and craters.

GeoGlitz: An Intensive Geological Survey of the Land at a Specific Location part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students gather geological information of a designated area and identify the geological features they documented.

Investigating Rock Layers and Fossils to Infer Past Depositional Environments at Lilydale Park part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this field investigation students document outcrop descriptions, develop investigable questions, present findings, and interpret a sedimentary rock sequence's depositional history.

Investigating The South Crow River: Discharge, Turbidity, Erosion, and Sediments part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a field investigation where students will gather data about the South Crow River using techniques of their own design and develop a group (multimedia) presentation for class presentation.

Investigating the difference in geology between Crookston High Campus and the Fertile Sand Dunes part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will make observations at two different locations and will infer the geological events that happened at each location to explain what they see and create questions for further study.

Investigation MN Geology: Identifying evidence for volcanism in Waite Park Quarries. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This field investigation of bedrock geology allows students to make observations, form questions, and conduct research to identify the evidence for volcanism in Minnesota.

An Investigation into Geologic Mapping: Quarry Park part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
