I think itís wonderful what you are doing to get rocks and minerals into the hands of young rock lovers. I am an Educational Assistant working in an elementary school with special needs children. But once a week on my lunch hour, I volunteer my time to run a Rock Hounds Club for grade 4 students. The children at my school are so excited about creating collections, playing rock games, learning about rocks and minerals and earning samples for prizes. I am constantly looking for new ways to inspire the children I work with. This year, I put together a resource kit (much like your kits) for teachers to sign out of the library when teaching the unit on Rocks and Minerals.
Iím writing just to thank you so much for the service you provide. Thank you for taking your love of rocks and minerals and using it to create Mini Me Geology. Please keep up the great work you are doing.
Excited about rocks and minerals,
