This class is for learners who want to share their love of gems, crystals, minerals and rocks. Students often want to spend a good part of class time in my other rocks and crystals classes sharing what they have. This class will provide a platform for structured sharing with some useful information about the stones, where possible. Tips for discovering more about the rocks will be shared. This is a good class for students who have already attended one of more of the crystal and gems classes. And it is also a good lead in for the Identification of rocks and Minerals class.
1- Welcome and introductions- 5 min
2- Individual sharing- Each student (if 5 enroll) will have 5-6 minutes to share a few of their favorite specimens and share what they know about them. If fewer children enroll sharing time will be adjusted accordingly.
3- The teacher will wrap up the class in the last 10 minutes with tips on how to obtain further information about the children's rock specimens and will post a handout with further information for students to download.
4- The teacher will encourage children to study further by taking, "Crystals and Gems: Identifying Minerals and Gems" class to learn more about rock and mineral identification practices.
