Attention Girl Scouts of Western WA – schedule your own field trip or science workshop and explore fresh ideas to help tie badges to Journeys. Rock Solid Science is a great resource for geology badges and learning about rocks, minerals, conservation, environmental science, food webs and all things earth science! Workshops are customized to meet the needs of your group, and activities are hands-on and allow kids to create something special to take home with them.
Some ideas to consider:
· Painting – explore the world of agates, which are the subject of a unique watercolor project
· Outdoor Art Creator – kaleidoscopes in nature featuring rocks, minerals and forest objects
· Outdoor Adventurer – sensory walk and observations on a forest trail
· Bugs – explore wetland ecology concepts and pond bugs
· Animal Habitats - learn about food webs, forest animals and dissect owl pellets!
· Drawing – explore geologic time, dig for fossils, wrap up with an illustration activity
· Outdoor Art Apprentice – make high quality, beautiful gem trees!
Cost depends on location, head count and supplies. Average cost is $20 -$25 per person, or a group flat rate can be quoted. All programs include earthy take-aways and experiences the girls will treasure.
* Note: rock and mineral workshops, geode cracking activities are available for troops too! Please inquire
