Today's new ELI is 'Questions for any rock face 13: quarry economics; what questions about potential for quarry re-opening might be asked at any rock exposure?'
At the end of the activity pupils can:-
- carry out arithmetical calculations;
- describe the potential uses of quarry materials;
- describe the economic potential of a quarry site;
- debate the issues around the re-opening of an old quarry.
Many more ideas for fieldwork can be found on the Earthlearningidea website.
