Third grade students have been studying rocks and minerals. They enjoyed an exciting day of exploration with Diamond Del’s mobile gem mine! Students were given a mining box of Brazilian mining ore. The students then sluiced the ore in the water flumes and discovered a variety of gems. What a memorable way to learn more about mineral identification and classification!

Third grade students learned about the layers of soil by sifting a soil sample from their yards. They used different sized screens in soil sifters to separate the particles and components in their samples. We were amazed by what we saw when we looked at the different layers using the Proscopes in the STEM lab!
