We got a kit to learn how to discover rocks. How the geologists do it.
The other kids were working on other school work so they weren't as happy they didn't get the 'easy' project like the younger kids. Hey, they're in 6th and 7th grade. No easy way out.
Summer, Sofie and Nik took turns pounding away at the rock. Even gentle with the paintbrush.
Rocks that were excavated from the block.
Decided to leave the indoor lesson for some time outside.
I remembered we had a giant piece of quartz in the yard. So, time to go have a look.
All were taking a really good look at it and saying things about it. For the younger kids, a chance to show them rocks are not always those tiny little things in the road.
We are currently learning how to classify some rocks and minerals.
