Rocks and Minerals

Grade(s): 3

Location: Musée Héritage Museum

Program Delivery: In Person and In School

This program begins with thinking about Earth from the “inside out” as students share what they know about the Earth’s core, mantle and crust. Our collection of rocks, minerals and petrified wood is available for examination as students discuss how they are formed. The students make a volcano and learn how to classify rocks and find out more about minerals.
