The guide for this trail is an activity booklet that explores geology.
Each stop tells a story and has an activity to try. Activities range from blowing bubbles in milk to mimic pillow basalt formation, to writing a syntu about an erratic, to pushing together two halves of a chocolate bar to make it form mountains or submerging plates.
Theme: The rocks of the Whiteshell are treasures because they are so old. They have been on a great adventure around the world and today they bear the scars of many fantastic events.
Challenge: Make geology and its vast time scale interesting and fun for both children and adults.
Location: Falcon Lake, Whiteshell Provincial Park
