Cave & Mine Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

In history, caves have been used as shelter, as canvases for cave paintings, for rituals, and for food and weapons storage. In addition to historical relevance, caves also have unique geological features. On your tour be on the lookout for crystals, pools of water, stalagmites, and stalactites.

Mines are filled with useful materials that we use today. Coal is used to create electricity. Gold is used in the making of computers and jewelry. Limestone is used to make sidewalks and statues and monuments. Gypsum is used to make wallboards and plaster which is used in the construction of homes. Ask your tour guides about what the processes are like for mining each of these resources. How long does it take? What do each of these look like in their raw state?
