In this activity students draw a geologic map based on a teacher-prepared terrain model with outcrops placed across the landscape according to a predetermined pattern to represent flat, tilted, folded, and/or faulted strata. Students will map the outcrops and indicate their strike, dip and draw lines to indicate contacts. As a result of this activity students will understand how geologists use geologic maps to predict locations of unseen rocks after they record observations on base maps, classify data, and analyze map patterns. Students will also understand relationships between outcrops, contacts, formations, and geologic structures.
