Rocking through time

Clues to the past are right beneath our feet and everywhere that we see rocks and rock formations. In this theatrical performance, students will journey back in time with a farmer and a geologist to witness first-hand how various rocks were formed. With the use of sound, props and drama, and some help from student volunteers, we will explore the geological aftermath of volcanoes, ice ages, climate change and more.  We may even encounter some extinct creatures! The show is suitable for primary aged students and is approximately 45 minutes in length, including time for the audience to chat with the performers/scientists at the end of the show. The show is designed to be performed on a cleared floor space (hall or classroom) for a maximum audience of 200, seated on the floor.
