Rose Drive Elementary School first graders were rockin’ with the rocks and minerals presentation given to them by Jimmy and Jason from Jeweler’s Touch in Placentia. They learned about the igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks – how they are formed and their properties. They were excited about learning about precious gemstones and what their own birthstones are.
In addition to a slideshow presentation, Jimmy and Jason brought a large array of rock and mineral samples for students to see and touch. Students were especially excited about seeing a piece of rock from outer space – a 4.4 billion year-old meteorite! Following the presentation, students were engaged in learning about precious rocks they were given with notes showing what their rock was and where in the world it is found.
