Partner-teachers Wanda Pickell and Andrea Eisler deliver this engaging, 1-1.5 hour virtual workshop for Grade 4-5 classes. Students will be introduced to the rock cycle and learn how the physical properties of rocks can tell you how they formed. They will learn about rocks and minerals as non-renewable natural resources, and how the properties of rocks and minerals determine how they are used.
In-class workshops for your students are great enhancements to your science and mining units.
