MineralsEd Kids & Rocks Classroom Workshop (Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley)
MineralsEd partner-teachers Ann Brace and Wanda Pickell deliver this engaging, half-day workshop for primary students. Each child works with his/her own collection of rocks and exploration tools (provided), handling them and making observations. They are guided to sort and classify them by observable properties, all the while working independently and with their classmates. This is an inquiry-based learning experience that teaches the processes of science and math utilizing a subject children love -- ROCKS!
