Teacher Reference Materials
Geology at the Grand Canyon
- Grade Level:
- Upper Elementary: Third Grade through Fifth Grade
Designed to enhance student learning about Grand Canyon geology, this reference packet for teachers covers basic geologic principles such as erosion, plate tectonics, and geologic time. The included activities expand students' knowledge of geology and introduces them to the processes that have shaped Grand Canyon. Activities can be performed before or after your geology field trip (Grand Canyon Rocks; Stories in Stone; or Dynamic Earth). If you are not attending a field trip to the park, most activities can be used independently in your classroom.
