This activity is based on a large number of U. S. National Parks that were created because of their geologic formations. Students will use the U.S. National Park Service’s website and the American Geosciences Institute Image Bank website to create a PowerPoint presentation that will highlight the variety of geological features of the U. S. National Parks. The emphasis is on large-scale geologic processes, such as weathering, erosion, and deposition by movements of wind, ice, and water. Expected time of completion of the activity 180 minutes, including time for virtual field trips, research, and presentations.
