We attended a class on Rocks and Gems at the Science Center of St. Petersburg. It was a drop off, no adults class. Mom snuck in part way through when she poked her head in and I was upset. I was having a hard time with come of the information the instructor was saying. I was convinced she was incorrect and very frustrated.
I mellowed out once Mom came in and discussed things with me.
We had to check for different properties of rocks. We learned bout erosion and weathering.
I had a few other questions about the material but Mom walked me through the correct information.
I had fun working on weathering some sugar cubes by shaking the container.
We also had a little lab on rock ID.
It was a fun class but there were some mistakes in the information they were teaching. But it was inexpensive and Mom was there to help guide us through the wrong parts. After the class we watched a show in the planetarium that was make in 2003! Just a little outdated!
