Portion of a Geo-lingo Bingo card

Geo-Speak includes two fast-paced, participatory reviews of the vocabulary-rich language of plate tectonics. Both activities are meant to ease the educator’s burden of wading through scientific terminology before embarking on a deeper understanding of geologic processes. I HaveTectonics incorporates the basic tectonic language of the Franciscan rocks and leads into Cookie Tectonics. Geo-lingo Bingo provides a deeper exploration of the Franciscan Complex in the Bay Area.
