The Connecticut Geology Guide is a curriculum unit compiled and written by the Yale Peabody Museum and four Connecticut teachers in support of the State of Connecticut Science Framework Standard 7.3. This standard is about the major geologic forces that shaped the land - tectonic processes, glaciation, weathering and erosion. The unit is designed to be taught in three weeks. It was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation to Principal Investigators Jay J. Ague and Jane Pickering. Click on the links below for the guide and accompanying documents:
