4 PM Review HOMEWORK - the Warm Springs Loop
Repeat to remember... remember to repeat.
4:15 – 4:45 -- Read the landscapes viewed from Sugar House Park.
Patterns. Curiosity. Content.
Patterns of Earth materials: specifically, patterns of sediments; and patterns of bedrock (layering).
Patterns of landforms: familiar landforms. Landmarks as a path toward sense of place.
Introduction to "UofU Geology Panorama"
4:50 PM – 5:15 PM -- Nine Chapters of Sugar House Park's Geologic Past.
Color the UofU cross-section. Please color the rock units from oldest to youngest, including "Chapter Nine: Now! Stretching to the West and Stability to the East."
Review the rules of relative age. For example: how do we "know" that the bedrock of Lone Peak is younger than the bedrock of Mt. Olympus?
Is Mount Olympus getting shorter or taller over time?
How do we know Parley's Canyon is younger than its bedrock?
How would we figure out how the sediments of Sugar House Park got here, and when?
Peg Alderman promises to create (bake) a stratigraphic model of the 18th Century set of ages: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Quaternary!!
5:40: Re-read PATTERNS of the landscape from Sugar House Park.
Having colored the UofU cross-section and reviewed the nine chapters of Utah's geologic past... see patterns; wonder about them; and please feel significant JOY of Earth Science Outside...
Specifically, read the patterns of an image of Mt Olympus taken looking north from 65th South and State Street. Relate that image to what we see from Sugar House Park and to what is shown on the UofU cross-section.
6 PM. Best wishes. Peg and I encourage you to invite us to your school yard to figure out your "Earth Science Outside."
We know you are busy. We know you teach multiple subjects. We also believe that when you "know" your Earth Science Outside, you'll embrace your accomplishments from this workshop.
FINAL DAY to submit assignments, etc. April 22.
