This site takes readers on a detailed, fourteen-day adventure down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. The trip includes breath-taking photos and a few videos of the river, canyon walls, plant life and local animals. The site maintains a wealth of knowledge on geologic history. Be prepared for some lengthy reading.

In the Classroom

As they read the descriptions of the tour, students will find first-hand accounts of some of the research being done on the Colorado River. Since most teachers cannot take an actual trip to the Grand Canyon, use this site on laptops or a projector for a virtual trip. Ask questions requiring students to find examples of various types of rock or evidence of the geologic history of the canyon. A simple set of "why?" questions about various images will challenge students to apply what they know about rock, sediment, erosion, and more.
