Gallery Walk Questions on Karst
This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions about karst formations. Question topics include stalactites and stalagmites, spring and disappearing stream formation, cross-sections, relationships between solution process effectiveness and local hydrology, bedrock, groundwater contamination management strategies, and multi-use cave management. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level at which students are engaged, using Bloom's Taxonomy.
