The Society for Sedimentary Geologists (SEPM) encourages all geologists to become involved in earth science education by sharing their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm with students and teachers. In this SEPM resource, the goal is to help K-12 educators improve earth science education by identifying activities that directly impact and enhance classroom instruction; to foster geoscientist involvement in K-12 education; and to offer information for students interested in careers in sedimentary geology. There are classroom activities about rocks and minerals, water, fossils, maps, and geologic time. Each activity gives background information, materials, time required, grade level, procedure, and additional activities for follow up. There is also information on careers in sedimentary geology, as well as ideas for geoscientists on how to become involved. Links to more web materials are provided for additional resources.
