Description:

This lab utilizes rock samples and images of rocks found in Greenstone Belts that formed globally during the Precambrian Era. The students examine and describe each of the samples visually using terminology regarding their rock texture and associated features. The students then describe or suggest what the rock properties suggest about the process of formation of the rock and the depositional or geologic environment in which the rock formed. Students then collate the data given the relative ages of the rocks and hypothesize how or where these rock units and features could possibly have formed in this association.
