This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. This publication contains resources designed to do three things. The first is to complement teacher content knowledge and its relationship to the nature of geologic science. Geology is not a laboratory based science lending itself to traditional notions of controlled experiments, rather it is a historical science requiring different methods. Second, we supply teachers with various student centered, hands-on/minds-on activities to develop student understanding, and third, we provide career oriented resources to expose students to scientists whose work involves concepts in geologic time.
