Fire and Ice - Teacher Resources
This introductory geology program for sixth through eighth grades covers the rock cycle, glacial features, and plate tectonics. A hike around Great Head gives an opportunity to see evidence of these processes.

The websites below contain earth science background information, activities, and reinforcement material relevant to the Fire and Ice geology program. This material can be used to supplement existing pre- and post-site classroom activities. When preparing for your field trip to Acadia National Park, consider aligning your areas of concentration with the major topics of our program: geological processes (i.e. weathering and erosion), rock types, plate tectonics, soil formation, geologic time, and glaciation.
