Students will learn why rocks and minerals are non-renewable natural resources, the uses of minerals in everyday life, rock types, and the rock cycle. They will also have the chance for hands-on learning by investigating the physical properties of rocks and minerals using the same techniques as real geologists. By the end of this workshop, your students will be a "Junior Geologist"!
