This is a resource for educators outlining practical activities that explore geological processes on Earth and how to identify geological features in images. It demonstrates how scientists use the Earth to gain a better understanding of other planetary bodies in the solar system through examining images of their geological features. Identification of geological features on Earth formed by wind, water, impact (meteor) and volcanic action are explored. These skills are then transferred to identifying geological features on other planetary bodies. The practical activity can be scaffolded into a range of learning activities according to student learning levels and curriculum focus.
