Nature composes some of her loveliest poems for the microscope and the telescope.
What? It’s OVER? It seems like we were just TALKING about this … in … SEPTEMBER! We’ve had such an AMAZING learning journey … wondering, researching, discovering, wondering MORE … and discovering SO much about rocks and minerals over the last month and a half. To be honest, we are CERTAIN we could continue this inquiry over the entire course of the YEAR and still not be done wondering and learning!
Interspersed throughout this post are our HIGHLIGHTS of the afternoon! Thank you to EVERYONE for helping to make our Rock Museum such a HIGHLIGHT!
