Hide and Seek Sandstone: Geology by Satellite

Hide and Seek Sandstone: Geology by Satellite October 2018

EO Kids is looking at the Earth’s rock layers from space.  Find out how scientists see different rock types with the help of satellites and solve the mystery of how rock layers move to make cool rock formations.  Plus, create your own colored-modeling clay mountain and then erode it away.

At EO Kids we are committed to making Earth science fun and engaging. Come explore our Earth with us.

Learn about Earth’s layers with Tassia Owen as she cuts into the past with modeling clay in this EO Kids hands-on activity.
