Northern Minnesota has a dynamic geologic history born of oceans, fire, and ice.  The rocks that we now see along the shoreline can help us to tell the story of what happened in this region. In this lesson students will actively develop an understanding of geology of the Lake Superior Basin through geo-theater, rock identification, geologic timeline exploration, and more!
