Finding gems!

The Fourth Grade classes had a field trip with Diamond Del’s Gem Mine. Students explored rocks and minerals from all over the world. They had a collection of Brazilian gems that they sifted and identified. Students in Mrs. Wilkins' class then took it a step further. After they identified their bag of rocks they tallied their results and created a bar graph showing the variety of the kinds of rocks. Students enjoyed the day and went home with a bag of rocks to keep.
