Geological Movies


       One of the things that I find fascinating is how bad a geology movie could be. They are surprisingly good teaching tools though, if you know how to use them right. Here I am going to give an overview of pretty much any geology movie out there as well as a worksheet with questions for students. If you are a geology professor and wish to use these go right ahead, I would just appreciate credit for it though. Eventually all the movies will have questions and overviews. For the question sheets, I recommend watching the movie first, then attempting the questions before reading my description for the answers. Some answers will be in there but not all of them. Email me for some help if you need it (email at the bottom of the page).
