Over the years GeoBus has tried and tested a range of activities to demonstrate different Earth Science topics. Under each topic below is a selection of quick activities that can be incorporated in to lessons to provide a hands on learning experience, along with more in-depth lesson plans which are based on the GeoBus workshops delivered over the years. We are currently in the process of making all of these materials available so if there is nothing related to the topic you are looking for then please check back later, or get in touch with us.
Anyone is free to use these resources as they wish and if you have any questions or would like additional support with sourcing materials then please feel free to get in touch via email or our social media channels .
If you’d like to give us feedback on any of the materials, you can also do so using this survey.

These materials were created in conjunction with researchers at the University of Glasgow and others involved in a NERC-funded research programme to understand how quickly the ancient carbon in the limestone is returned back to the atmosphere. For more detail on the project, please contact Professor Susan Waldron.
