Lesson 3:  "Today we discussed the topic of minerals and how they differ from rocks. We also talked about the properties of minerals, like color and streak. Our students then applied this knowledge by performing an investigation in which properties were used to identify unknown minerals. Afterwards, we talked about other types of properties that minerals can have like being fluorescent! It was an awesome day for our students; they got to be geologists today!"

Lesson 4: "Today we got to work with Oobleck to demonstrate the different layers of the Earth and understand how the crust functions! Through this experiment, we learned the different types of boundaries that exist here on Earth and how they are the reasons for mountains, tsunamis, and trenches. It was an awesome day for our students, even though they might have spilled some of the Oobleck onto their desks! This was one of their favorite clubs that we have had."
