Geology of the Grand Canyon: Interpreting its rock layers and formation part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this culminating activity, students will be assessed on what they have learned during the Geology unit of their Earth Science class. After conducting classroom and field studies on geology students will utilize this knowledge to interpret the rock layers and formation of the Grand Canyon. Outside of class students will read/review a website and complete a study guide to be reviewed by the teacher to assess students' learning. Following teacher review of study guides, the next class period(s) will be a discussion and questioning session(s) on the formation of the Grand Canyon.

Investigating Matter, Solid or Liquid: Barthlomew and the Oobleck part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
The students will be able to define solids and liquids from their prior knowledge. The students will be able to verbalize the differences between solids and liquids? Observe, communicate and question when things aren't what they appear to be. Is Oobleck a solid or liquid? The answer is that it is both. Have the students come up with their own answers and to communicate their findings. The students will understand the difference between a non-Newtonian fluid and a liquid or a solid.
