Our fifth grade has been studying rocks and minerals in ourDiscovery lab. Recently, Dr. JackPickering, Ms. Nancy Pickering’s (Pre-K teacher) father, visited the lab todiscuss his career as a geologist. Ourstudents benefited from his visit as they learned more about the importance ofrocks and how geologists work in their field. The rocks that glowed in the dark were the hit of the show! Currently, fifth graders are working asminers in the lab as they create a mountain prototype and then have to mineseveral minerals from their mountain…..very hard, but fun work!Geologist Visit and 5th Grade Miners Geologist Visit and 5th Grade Miners Geologist Visit and 5th Grade Miners Geologist Visit and 5th Grade Miners jack jack2 rocks scott
