We are finishing up our Geology Lessons this week. We spent about 13 weeks on Geology. We studied the Earth, rocks, volcanoes, earth quakes, soil erosion, water erosion, dinosaurs and natural resources. The kids worked through their science books, used Thames and Kosmos Crystals, rocks and Minerals kit as well as Thames and Kosmos Volcanoes and Earth Quakes. We also threw in a few other crafts and experiments, movies and Netflix shows to wrap it all together.
Candy bar faults, oreo plate techtonics, rock candy, and coffee grounds fossils. (Check out my Pinterest)
