Discovering Geology

Discovering Geology – one of the great offerings from the British Geological Survey. Their Make-a-Map is superb for class use. Check out the British Geology Viewer. A bit clunky as it goes from small scale to large scale without intermediates but another excellent resource.


OneGeology is a website aiming to make all the world’s geological map data freely available. The final aim is to make a complete dynamic geological map of the Earth – watch how they progress.

Role-Playing Scenaros

Role-Playing Scenarios – another part of the massive Carleton University Geoscience Department’s offerings in geology learning, teaching and pedagogy. TheĀ  range of material in geoscience is impressive and even ideas such as these can be adapted to a range of teaching situations. This is a first-rate site worth exploring.
