Geologic Mapping Exercise
Andrew Smith, Vincennes University
This exercise is designed to simulate some of the mapping aspects of a basic geological investigation. This mock geological investigation is a good wrap-up exercise because it incorporates a variety of geological ...

Guided Discovery and Scoring Rubric for Petrographic Analysis of a Thin Section
Dave Mogk, Montana State University-Bozeman
A guided discovery approach is used to "unpack" the methods and observations used by "master" petrographers in the petrographic analysis of a thin section. A series of spread sheets are used to ...

South Carolina Studies: Bringing the Geologic Time Scale Down to Earth in the Students' Backyard
John Wagner, Clemson University
Students visit Drayton Hall historic plantation near Charleston, South Carolina and are led on a field trip that starts with a discussion of documented historic changes that have affected the mansion and the surrounding property. The field trip continues with a study of Native American artifacts and ends with analysis of coastal plain deposits exposed along the Ashley River. Students use paleogeographic maps to discuss both historic and prehistoric changes to the landscape. Back in the classroom, students gather data to draw paleogeographic maps of their own school site through geologic time.
Geologic Maps and Geologic Structures: A Texas Example
Roger Steinberg, Del Mar College
Students work with geologic maps of Texas, learning details of Texas geology, and reinforce knowledge and use of geologic structures, stratigraphic sections, and geologic cross sections.
Learning how to use resistivity soundings for interpretation of subsurface stratigraphy
Remke Van Dam, Michigan State University
This activity uses a combination of field measurements, lab experiments and simple modeling to develop an understanding of electrical resistivity methods as a tool in geology and hydrology. Students work in groups ...
Looking for Gas Layers in Anadarko Basin, Oklahoma
Constantin Cranganu, CUNY Brooklyn College
The students perform a well log analysis in order to discover gas-bearing layers in a sedimentary basin (Anadarko)
Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion
ZABEL, Garret & WHITE, Sylvia Colorado Mountain College-Roaring Fork Campus
This is a 10-day field experience class that focuses on the geology of the Grand Staircase of the Colorado Plateau, culminating in a rim-to-rim backpack trip across the Grand Canyon, Arizona.
Rock-Tectonics synthesis lab
Dori Farthing, SUNY Geneseo
This lab aims to draw together rock identification and plate tectonics as well as relative age relationships. It gets students to "be" geologists...looking at rock suites and trying to see how they fit ...
Coyote Creek Geologic Map
Tim Walsh, Wayland Baptist University
Students are required to make field observations, collect data and then create a detailed geologic map and report for a small area (approximately 1 sq. mile) on the edge of the Tularosa Basin in south central New ...
Integrated Field Project in Structural Geology and Sedimentology/Stratigraphy
Lawrence L. Malinconico, Lafayette College
By combining the curricular and learning objectives across traditionally separate undergraduate courses in Sedimentology/Stratigraphy and Structural Geology, Lafayette College has developed an innovative year-long ...
