Looking for ways to teach geology to your students? We’ve developed some lesson plans to assist!

In our newest lesson plan, students will use modeling clay to create a model of Wisconsin’s four main aquifers. This activity helps them envision Wisconsin’s aquifers in three dimensions while learning about the geologic concepts that guide how geologists interpret the rocks below ground.
