Learn how to identify the three major rock types and a variety of rock samples with a real geologist! This virtual class is perfect for home school groups, classrooms, Scouts, and camps. Our geologist will start the session telling your students about geology, rocks and minerals. Plus, we will show your students some of the fun field equipment geologists use when collecting rock and mineral samples and taking field notes.
Our geologist will then teach your students the methods that geologist use to identify rock samples and perform several demonstrations. If is helpful if your students have samples to examine but not required. At the end of the presentation, we will allow plenty of time for Q&A so your students can ask anything that they want to know.
The class instructor will receive a PDF copy of the book "Help, I Have to Teach Rock and Mineral Identification and I'm Not a Geologist!" and a PDF student lesson book with flow charts, worksheets, rock puzzles and an image gallery that you can use in follow-up lessons.
The class lasts approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the amount of questions.
