e2 Geography – Earth Sciences at Carleton U

Element Students at Carleton U

Students visited Carleton University’s department of Earth Sciences to learn more about geology. They participated in some hands-on activities that help them understand the different types of rocks and minerals and how they formed, and the impact of plate tectonics on the earth’s continents. They also visited the rock lab, where we used a grinding saw to cut into some geodes. As the geology experts pointed out, we were the first people in the history of the earth to see inside these rocks!
