Posted On: 5 Apr

SCHOOL: Saint Pauls Elementary

GRADE LEVEL: 2ndSpotlight-School-saint-pauls
PROGRAM: Soil Rocks
INSTRUCTOR: Mary Colbert
Scientist Mary’s Experience:

I spent two wonderful days with the second graders at St. Pauls. For the first half of the program, the junior scientists learned about different types of soil and why it’s so important. The scientists mention that soil is habitat for many animals, that without soil we cannot grow plants for food and clothes, and get air from trees. For the second half of the program we pretended to be geologists in a cave looking for treasures within the Earth’s crust. So of course, I turned off the lights and with there headlamps on they searched for rocks and minerals!
