Unearth the mysteries of geology as you dig deep into the science of rocks and minerals and the crystals that form them. Through 18 hands-on experiments, kids ages 8 and up will discover some ground-breaking things about geology, mineralogy, and crystal growing.
Become a geologist-in-training as you mold your own crystal geode and grow three different vibrant types of crystals that vary in color and shape. Work with real mineral specimens to learn how to determine each mineral’s chemical properties — such as color, lustre, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content — and use your findings to identify and classify unknown minerals. As you explore, you’ll receive an overview of the geologic rock cycle and discover how the three main categories of rock — igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic — are formed, altered, destroyed, and re-formed.
Whether you’re already a geology enthusiast, or just discovering this rocking science for the first time, Kids First: Crystals, Rocks & Minerals makes for an unforgettable and fun educational experience.
