Discuss the geologic history of the area where you live or grew up. Discuss some of the major factors that might have played a role in shaping the local terrain (major rivers, sea-level changes, volcanoes, ancient sea beds, glaciers, earthquakes, etc.). If needed, spend a few minutes researching your state on-line, (search for your state and “geologic history”). Be sure to list all sources that you use in your answer.
Based on the descriptions of the other students, respond to a student who lives in a place that you would like to live or visit. What is it about the geology of the place that intrigues you? Be sure to keep the discussion based in science.
