PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Click around this Google Maps webquest to explore locations that showcase igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks! This virtual field trip activity provides you with:

-Student response sheet (PDF and Word)- Print it or distribute digitally. 11 links to 360 degree views of rock formations throughout the world are embedded into this sheet.

- PowerPoint for teacher presentation- After students explore the links on their sheet, review the exact locations visited with this PowerPoint that contains discussion points for each rock site.

-A website that contains all 11 links (optional). If you can't distribute the worksheet to students digitally, print the worksheet and direct students to a short URL (withheld from this description, included in product). From there, students can click each link that the worksheet directs them to.

- Answer key (The answers are also present in the teacher PowerPoint).

Each link uses Google Maps street view to drop students into a 360 degree view of a rock formation. Some of the sites are: Antelope Canyon, AZ, Seine Cliffs, France, Geiranger fjord, Norway, Canary Islands, Mauna Loa, Hawaii, and more.

An example link from the activity: https://goo.gl/QrUYIr <---- Copy and paste this link into your browser.

The response sheet gives students a chart with the three rock types and characteristics of each. It also gives students a column to record their observations and a column to record what rock type they think is being observed.

Google Maps works through ordinary internet browsers, so no software installation is necessary.
