Mining Field Trip

6th Grade Goes Mining
Posted on 01/22/2020

On January 15th, students at FSMS, under the direction of science teachers, Mrs. Akin and Mr. Roper experienced real life hands on work digging for minerals and rocks. Students were able to use skills learned in Unit Two, Rocks and Minerals to test their content mastery of minerals and identifying specific characteristics of the three major types of rocks.

Students applied their knowledge about minerals and rocks as they experience life as a miner. They were able to collect rare minerals from the ores of Brazil right in the comfort of their school. Students were excited to see the natural resources that came from Earth and were able to take home their collection and share with their parents.

Diamond Del’s Adventure was a huge success! Mrs. Akin and Mr. Roper continue to incorporate real life experiences through hands on activities that students can apply what they have learned in class to their own environment.
