Daily Objectives #4 (September 4, 2008)                                                                                            Dr. Sanders

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

w List the three major types of rocks and explain how each type forms.

w For each of the three major rock types, list three characteristics that will help you identify them when you see them again.

w Demonstrate that you know how to use a geologic hand lens.

w List the elements that any map should have to make it useful. 

w Examine the maps made in class last week to see how many of these elements are found on the maps we made.

Describe how three dimensional landscape can be illustrated on a flat map.

w Sketch examples of how several different landforms would appear using the 3-D topographic mapping method.

Due to the weather, we will postpone this objective until Tuesday!  Using your geologic knowledge and observation skills, examine and make observations about the rocks, minerals, landforms, and other geologic features of interest on the NEIU campus.
