Geology and Our Environment. Environmental Education Curriculum. Revised.
Topeka Public Schools, KS.
Rocks, and the soil formed from rock, play a major role in determining such particulars as the type of crops that can be grown in a specific area and the type of housing that can be constructed. Also, rocks may supply fuel and building materials, and provide information about the history of an area. This unit is constructed to expose secondary students to the forces that have determined the topography of an area, data on and field experience in fossil collecting, variance of rocks and fossils in different areas and how this information affects the city dweller's life through such illustrative examples as zoning decisions and considerations in purchasing a home. Teaching aid materials include behavioral objectives of the unit, a suggested time line, suggested methodologies, lists of appropriate films and filmstrips, and suggested evaluative instruments.
