The first 3 chapters of my book about rocks and minerals give step-by step procedures for collecting, washing, sorting, matching, crystal making, painting, learning the parts of the earth and becoming aware of the earth's properties.
The materials used in these lessons can be found in your own outdoor and indoor environments.
Chapters 4 through 7 are also available. They give lessons on the different rock types. An appendix for the specific rock samples is included.
The beauty of using both Sections 1 and 2 of this book is that one will see how it all dovetails together and creates a full geology program for the young child.
