Digging beneath the surface to uncover keys to local geology.
A Natural History of Our Local Park: Geology and Ecological Succession
Contributed By: Johnny Devine, Science and Math Institute
This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply foundational ecological and geological concepts to investigate the natural history of their own local environment. Using field investigation and research skills, they are able to “dig beneath the surface” (literally) to uncover how the land was formed, why its current inhabitants are able to live there and why the land can support its current human uses.
