Week 12 – Rock and Mineral Show!

Every year the local rock club puts on an amazing rock and mineral show. They have tons of rocks, information, activities, and the kids splurge and buy lots of rocks to add to their collections. We look at the rocks and try to figure out what they are, organize them, tumble them, talk about hardness and other qualities of rocks… it’s super awesome.

And this year…. I actually won a door prize! Woo!
