Identify rocks in the laboratory and then construct the sudduction zone.
Subduction Construction!

Your students journey into the Subduction Zone to solve the geologic mystery of how the rocks you see in the cliffs of the Golden Gate formed millions of years ago. In this virtual exploration, students will collect rock samples in the field; examine and identify their samples in the laboratory; and, use this information to piece together a subduction zone, layer-by-layer in geologic context. A great way to introduce subduction or conclude a unit by checking for understanding.
