ROCKS AND MINERALS IN YOUR CLASSROOM
We partner with teachers, parents and camp directors to offer high quality rock and mineral programs at your school. Our educators will share their excitement for earth science with investigative materials, interactive programming, fun props and self guided discovery stations that will engage your students.
Our school programs and field trips introduce basic concepts of earth system history, geologic time, the rock cycle, types of rocks and why minerals are valuable resources. Topics can be tailored to bridge concepts you may be learning in the classroom. Currently offering programs for grades K-8.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Programs are generally 60 minutes depending on the age and size of your group. We bring all the resources to your school or desired location. Touch tables, activity stations, tools, safety goggles, identification cards and rocks to take home are included. There are many possibilities and we are happy to discuss collaborations!
We will customize the programming to fit your needs and audience.
Multiple activities will be offered during an event, to keep things fresh and fun.
We bring everything! You provide the space, we provide the rest.
Some activities may require electricity, water, or outdoor access (i.e. cracking geodes, gem mining).
