In this 90-minute Virtual Workshop, students will be introduced to rocks and minerals, and the rock cycle. 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"!
There are two programs to choose from:
- The Rock Cycle - Minerals in everyday life; BC mineral resources; rock properties; the rock cycle.
- Rocks and Minerals - Minerals in everyday life; BC mineral resources; rock and mineral properties; mineral identification.
