Rocks on the Move brings young geologists to the scenic Marin Headlands, where the science of plate tectonics unfolds in the landscapes around us. Through both individual and small group work, students use geologic maps, historic photos, data from local scientific studies, and framed transparencies to find evidence of deep seafloor processes, including volcanism, deposition, fossilization, past climates, and tectonic plate movements.
Rocks on the Move programs are structured in three parts:
1. Classroom Preparation - lessons delivered by the teacher and NPS staff with resources provided by the park
