Your students will enter the exciting world of geology!
In-Person In-School Field Trip Description:
They will learn about the intriguing components of rocks and minerals and will use their scientific minds to predict, test and record observations. Using tools, sift and examine a dirt sample, perform a calcium carbonate test, examine rock and mineral samples, perform a magnetic test on a mineral, and learn about sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks. The excitement builds as students become geologists and dig through a claystone to find minerals or fossils to take home!
Field Trip on Demand Program Description:
Rock E Road is determined to become a world-famous geologist—if only he can find the elusive claystone that he’s been searching for his entire life. Your students will follow along with him on his journey through a riverbed area and then hear from leading experts on how rocks are formed, extracted from the earth, analyzed and utilized in the world around us. Each student will also get to dig into their own claystone to find minerals or fossils—theirs to take home after!
