Years 6-9: Mawson and Minerals Trail

Students’ ideas on how rocks and minerals are formed can be enriched as they follow the evidence that Mawson found to explain South Australia’s geological history. Students can see the variety of minerals in the Museum’s collection.

We recommend booking a DECD Education Manager to support your lesson as students can then handle examples of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks as well as different minerals.
