Katie's class has been studying rocks and minerals and they are both jazzed and experts. Today they had their first University course and they rocked the house! They knew so much -- so much more than me -- and they were so curious. I shared with Katie that they were collectively more enthusiastic about learning than my college students and I think she should be quite proud of her learners! I am also grateful to Prof. Mark
I was a bit bemused that despite my endless efforts, the hypothetical dinosaurs were always "he" -- what's a feminist mom to do?
Katie mentioned that kids have learned a ton from the Magic School Bus book about rocks; thinking maybe it is this one?
Ask one of them about their favorite mineral - there are a lot of cool ones to choose from! And above : have you ever wondered what is inside those rocks in the garden?
