Here are a number of lesson plans I created and used for two years during undergrad (2006-2008). These were for CareerTrek, a fantastic vocational awareness program for children.
Lesson 1: Gemology
Lesson 2: Mapping
Lesson 3: Thin Sections
Lesson 4: Geophysics
Lesson 5: Paleontology (and supplemental worksheet)
Lesson 4 as written was the least popular topic amongst the kids. So I replaced it with this one, which proved to be among the most popular.
Lesson 4: Exploration Company
