Geology Tool Box Lables!
~Marcie Rodriguez, Education Coordinator
How rocks are defined with examples!
With the school year coming, the museum is finishing Geology: The Science of Getting Your Hands Dirty tool box. While the bottom half was desgined to meet 4th grade curriculum standards, the top we designed to me more flexible. It explores how rocks are defined using geologic terms, what sort of uses different rocks have, and what local rocks are being used for. They also get to see a variety of fossils, many of which are from our valley.
