Gallery Walk Questions about Coastlines
This site from SERC's Starting Point features Gallery Walk questions about coastlines. The questions explore coastal features, contour maps of former glacial lake shorelines, impacts of the rise and fall of the Great Lakes, how plants, animals, soil and groundwater are effected by natural hazards, zoning plan development, and dam removal. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level at which students are engaged, using Bloom's Taxonomy.
