Summary:This activity can be carried out using any exposed surface of rocks, including natural and artificial rock exposures, but also building stones, monuments or gravestones. Manufactured materials such as bricks, tiles, and concrete also show the effects of weathering. This series of Earthlearningideas suggests questions about geological processes that might be asked when standing with pupils looking at a rock in a cliff, road cutting or quarry. The first of the series is about planning for fieldwork and the second is all about weathering.
