Class experience

Students will learn:
-general rock and mineral knowledge such as how different rocks are formed and uses of rocks
-difference between a rock and mineral
-distinctions between different types of rock: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks
-history of rock art
-how we use rocks and minerals in every day of our lives
-types of fossils
...and much more!

This class will cover a bit of geology, science, social studies, history, art and language arts! 
As a homeschool Mom I am a believer in following learner’s passions and making learning fun. I have seen the ageless sparkle in learner’s eyes when they find an interesting rock and followed this natural curiosity for inspiration in creating this class. I have done the hours and hours of research into geology, petrology and consulted with my expert rock collector children themselves in creating this "Kids Rock Camp!"  In short, we dug up all the dirt on rocks and minerals and kept it fun, informative, and relevant keeping learning rich and inspiring. :)
Homework Offered
Students may want to start their own rock collection. Optional homework is provided, worksheets will be uploaded to the online classroom to practice their new skills and knowledge.
