Rocks on the Move Curriculum Guide
This is an annotated guide for the Rocks on the Move program curriculum. It is designed to help you select the elements of our program that will best serve your students. Several of the lessons in this guide utilize materials included in the Rocks on the Move Traveling Trunks, available to Bay Area teachers participating in programs in the Golden Gate National Parks. In order to make our curriculum accessible to teachers beyond the San Francisco Bay Area, we have included links to digital files of the Traveling Trunk lessons. Some of these lessons do not require the rock samples and posters of the Traveling Trunks.
