This is an LEARNZ virtual field trip.

In preparation for this field trip you will learn about New Zealand geology, geologic time, the age of rocks , types of rocks, the rock cycle, the moving crust, folding and faulting, mountain building, erosion, igneous rock formation, volcanic examples, plutonic examples, sedimentary rock formation, rocks that talk, fossils, metamorphic rock formation. During the field trip you will travel on a geological road trip from east coast to west across the South Island. On the way you will put questions to geologists as they explain the processes of rock formation, faulting and folding, and the concept of geologic time. You will also go fossil hunting as you discover how New Zealand's unique landscape was formed. After the field trip, you and your class will never look at rocks the same way again.
