We begin by thinking about Earth from the “inside out” as your students share what they know about the Earth’s core, mantle and crust. Our collection of rocks, minerals, and petrified wood is available for examination as we discuss how they are formed. The students are divided into smaller groups and rotate through stations where we make a volcano, learn how to classify rocks and find out more about minerals.
