Bring your students to the rainbow sands of Rodeo Beach to unravel the mysteries of the rocks of the Franciscan Complex and feel Earth's history in a beach pebble. Through guided inquiry and cooperative learning, students connect classroom earth science to the dynamic landscapes of the Bay Area, and propose how, when, and where human history and geology interact. Students consider how communities meet the challenges of living in a geologically active environment and a changing climate.
