Book of Geology Questions

Lesson Topic: Geology Vocabulary/Research
Objectives: This open-ended type of student-authored book is used to reinforce vocabulary and research development in the area of geology that students are studying. Let student curiosity be the motivator. The teacher conducts a brainstorming session to list possible questions and terms. This project acts as a research project in that students must consult encyclopedias and other nonfiction resources to find out information on geology they want to know about, but have little to no experience with.
