About Rock Cycle

Dig into northeastern Indiana’s rich geological history! Students start inside for a slide introduction explaining glaciers & their impact on this area. The rest of the program time is then spent outside experiencing the results of glacial activity firsthand. Students hike down an esker, moving through layers of top soil & glacial till until they finally reach a peat bog at the bottom. Students also explore & identify rocks in an abandoned gravel pit discovering the variety of treasures left behind by receding glaciers.
