Geology Resources - Rocks, Minerals, and Gemstones

My kids really love these monthly themed Calendar Connections with fun science and history facts. We chose rocks and minerals for August.

Tori practiced her reading with this great rocks and minerals unit study from Currclick (link below)!

Tori loved seeing this huge crystal at Dorothy’s Glass Hut.

All my kids loved Mummelsee and the rocky Mermaid statue.

We loved the pattern on this eroding rock at Mummelsee.

Projects and Crafts:

  • Have fun with this edible rock project.
  • Make crystals.
  • Rock doodles project
  • Get crafty and make a pet rock! Be creative. Paint it, glue on googly eyes, and give it hair!
  • Celebrate Collect Rocks Day on September 16!
  • Go on a nature walk and collect pretty and intersting rocks to study. Look them up online or in a guide book. Discuss texture, color, class. My kids are obsessed with rocks and collect them wherever we go – cheap souvenirs! (Make sure it’s legal to take rocks wherever you are! Some places don’t like it.)
