CHICAGO ROCKS!  Geology in the City
ESCI 109, Section 03
Fall 2008

Daily Objectives #2 (August 28, 2008)                                                                                            Dr. Sanders

By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:

w Given a set of four rocks, list three one-word observations about each sample.

Compare your observations with others, for each related sample. 

In groups, choose the two *most important* characteristics for each sample. 

    List the keys to good teamwork that enable a group to complete a task like this. 

List the ways in which the rocks are *different* from each other. 

Recognizing that landscape gives clues to Chicago's geology, explore the Commons area: observe and make
notes/ sketches/ etc. as to its characteristics. 

Back indoors, using paper or play-dough, make a representation of the NEIU Commons landscape.

A web reading assignment will be posted soon; watch for it!
