Educator Resources for Landform Detectives

In Landform Detectives, Dr. Robert Ballard leads students on an interactive journey to visit landforms around the world. This fascinating expedition will help players understand the processes that shaped many different types of landforms, from deep valleys to high mountain peaks to forests of stone. As they explore different features, players must deduce exactly how the landforms developed. The more landforms they process correctly, the more locations become unlocked for them to visit. In playing Landform Detectives, students will come away with a better understanding of the role of ice, water, wind, and sand in shaping our planet—and of the time it takes for such processes to make their marks. Students will also come to view the natural world through the eyes of a geologist.
