A Teaching Lab that puts the Alternative in P.A.G.E.

So Matt over at Research at a Snail's Pace recently put up this lab that I feel puts the Alternative in the "Presenting Alternatives in Geoscience Education (P.A.G.E.)". He is measuring the thickness of tombstones and determining the amount of weathering based on the difference in the thickness at the top and bottom of the tombstone and using the date on the tombstone as the starting point of weathering.

Fantastic lab and make sure you head on over to check it out. Now if it didn't creep me out so much maybe I could do this as well.


  1. Thanks for the Hat-tip. Be sure to visit my links to the sources for my inspiration. I'll also post some post-student data soon!

  2. I will make sure to check out your sources and keep an eye out for the results.
