SCHOOL: St. Michael the Archangel
GRADE LEVEL: 4th
PROGRAM: Can You Dig It?
INSTRUCTOR: Scientist Christine
Scientist Christine’s’s Experience:
On my visit, the junior geologist and I got to go on a dig in hopes of finding different rocks, minerals, and even maybe a fossil. But before we went on our dig we had to review some important vocabulary such as: sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. Also, we discussed the difference between minerals and rocks. Once we had a good foundation of shared vocabulary we could proceed with our dig.
The dig, which I hypothesize, was everybody’s favorite experiment resulted in the junior geologist finding all sorts of rocks and minerals like rose quartz and snowflake obsidian.
I had two favorite parts of the day. First, was having a teacher, Mrs. Shrader, who had not seen one of our programs before. It is always fun to see first time teachers reactions to our programs. Good news, she really enjoyed the program! Second, I got to see some past science campers, Emilia, Abigail, and Aubrey. Good to see you girls!
In short, the day was rockin’!
