Groundwork Exploration

Groundwork Exploration is an exploration website provided by Science North, a science center is Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. There is a case study where students will learn more about the discovery of nickel and copper riches at Voisey's Bay, Newfoundland. A quiz also let students test their knowledge about Canada's mining industry. Texts are in a language that is easy to read and understand by most elementary school students. The main feature is the exploration portion of the website. In this part, students are invited to join the cartoon character to explore for gold, copper or diamonds on a "virtual property"! They learn to be an exploration geologist, to piece together the clues to help pinpoint the ideal drilling site. The site is available in both English and French.
