“Geology Lab for Kids offers 52 simple, inexpensive, and fun experiments that explore the earth’s surface, structure, and processes. Learn about the wonders of geology: the formation of crystals and fossils, the layers of the earth’s crust, and the eruption of geysers and volcanoes. Readers will learn about how crystals form; how insects are trapped and preserved in amber; how water shapes mountains, valleys, and canyons; how a volcano forms and erupts; how a geyser uses heat beneath the earth’s surface and more.”
Geology Lab for Kids
I keep my four grandkids regularly and we love to get out and explore. Because they are curious about everything, I love books like this. While offering 52 simple, inexpensive and FUN experiments for us to do together. It is a win-win situation for us. While they are learning I am enjoying quality time with my grandbabies. And the materials that are needed for most of the activities I already have around the house.
We live in the country and mud is plentiful. And they love to get dirty! With Lab 18 we were able to play in the mud, get dirty, laugh, have fun and LEARN! While exploring the earth’s surfaces, structure, and processes. We have experimented and tried out so many of the activities. And as I said, we live back in the woods. And we love to get out and explore. Now we are learning how nature works together to shape mountains, valleys, and canyons.
