Geology of the Great Plains and Mountain West

The Great Plains region is diverse—from the spectacular Rocky Mountains to the mighty Mississippi, but why is it so diverse? What relates the largest river system in North America to the rugged, steep Rockies to its west? Terrain, climate and plate tectonics. These factors make the physical geography of the Great Plains region so distinctive and interrelated. Explore the changes of the region while learning fun facts and trying experiments and projects.
