Stones and Stuff Booklet

This mini-booklet was created for a pre-GCSE geography group, but there is much overlap with the GCSE syllabuses. It looks at composition of the Earth, how rocks are formed, continental drift, plate tectonics, plate boundaries, and the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami case study.

It was done in 2014/5, so some of the figures may be a little out of date now, but rocks are still doing what they have always done, so it should still be relevant to your bog-standard KS3/4 student. Usually, I am really bad at keeping track of sources, but somehow I have managed to keep loads for this booklet, that have been added to the end of the document.

It has cross-over with environmental management.

To make:

  • Print out.
  • Fold each sheet in half along the shortest length (print on the outside).
  • Fold in half again along the shortest length (pages 1 and 8 on the outside of the first sheet and 3 and 6 on the outside of the second page), so that each sheet is a quarter of its original size.
  • All the page numbers should now be at the bottom of each side, so place the second folded sheet inside the first folded sheet, and hopefully that has given you pages 1-8 as a readable booklet.
