Interesting Fact:

Outcrop images (faulted strata, interbedded shale and limestone beds that have been tilted, beach rocks of different lithologies) can be used to bring the field into the geoscience classroom, giving students practice in doing what geoscientists do when they are in the field. These particular images are examples of interesting geologic puzzles.
Using the Gallery Walk technique, student groups will synthesize various weather variables.
