Rocks for Teachers II

Beth Schwarzman, Geologist with the WHFC, taught a 12-hour workshop for teachers on the Upper Cape (Cape Cod, MA) during the month of March. Teachers from elementary, middle and junior high schools went on a field trip to collect local rocks, learned to identify rock-forming minerals, and worked through activities that they can use with their students. Each teacher began a teaching collection of rocks and minerals. This class included several teachers who had taken the previous "Rocks for Teachers I" class. They extended and broadened their knowledge of rocks and acted as teaching assistants, encouraging others with how much they had learned. After the culminating rock identification activity, the teachers were each presented with a rock hammer to assist their future studies of rocks.
