This field trip guide presents a summary of the Paleozoic bedrock geology of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) region as well as an introduction to the Quaternary depositional and erosional history of the Twin Cities area, focusing on the carving of the Mississippi River gorge by glacial River Warren. Within this geological context, the philosophy behind a variety of pedagogical techniques is discussed, together with student learning goals, opportunities, and objectives for each locality.
