This lab studies glacial deposits to determine where glaciers come from, how they deposit material, and what glaciation records tell us about glacial processes. Building a context for its use, including links to related field labs, this website details the learning goals of this lab. It includes teaching notes and materials, as assessment recommendation, and links to additional resources and references.

0.0 stars

The Ideas for Resources: Geology Lab Manual is highlighted as part of the Starting Point Teaching Collection. This site contains a partially-fleshed-out list of questions and situations dealing with water, minerals, and public policy intended to be incorporated into role-playing activities. It is designed to accompany a course on resource geology or environmental geology. Its message is that access to geological resources depends upon a complex interplay between economic, political, legal, environmental, and geological factors. The suggested exercises require students to gather at least some of the data needed to play their roles. This website describes the learning goals and context of use of this exercise. It also provides teaching notes, a list of necessary teaching materials, assessment hints and additional resources.
