High School Environmental Science / 9th and 10th Grade
How can we use clues to solve a geological mystery?
Students create “geocake” models to tell a geological story. Using their understanding of geologic formations and the cycling of matter, students hold a geology bakeoff and review in which they describe the story behind each other’s cakes and critique others’ interpretation of their own.
Key content: earth processes, cycling of matter, water and rock cycles, scientific modeling
