If we know how to read them, rocks can tell us a story of how our landscapes were created. Geologic history shows us the shaping forces of our land long ago.

For this Wolf Ridge Adventures in Learning lesson, you will…

  • Learn about the rock cycle and see how geologic forces shaped the land around the Lake Superior basin.
  • Using a bedrock map, describe how differential erosion shaped today’s Wolf Ridge landscape.
  • Create a rock cycle model of your own.
  • Add observations about the rocks around you to your nature journal.

Let’s learn!
