Glaciers are Awesome!

A glacier is a large, moving sheet of ice and snow. Next to oceans, glaciers hold the most water on earth. The polar areas are covered largely by glaciers and in warmer areas, glaciers cover the highest mountain tops. Many other geologic features can also be formed by glaciers as well. Glaciers can be found on every continent.

A Little Fun Info about Mountains!

A mountain is a tall mass of land that has been either formed through tectonic plate collision or stretching or by volcanic activity. Mountains form some of the most spectacular and interesting scenery in the world.

Science Fun = Summer Learning (and the kids won’t even notice!)

During the summer we sometimes feel like our kids loose some the knowledge that they gained during the school year. I find myself constantly telling my kids to go read a book or work a few pages in their “thinking” workbook. But there are a few, not-so-quiet ways for kids to learn during the summer and they won’t even realize that they are finding out something new.

I designed the Mini Me Geology Rock Detectives line of kits to allow parents to give their kids a fun science kit that not only has large, nice rock and mineral specimens, but has a eBook full of information and ideas to keep your kids busy for hours, rather than in front of the television.
