Whether you’re a geology enthusiast already, or just discovering this rocking science for the first time, Kids First: Crystals, Rocks & Minerals makes for an unforgettable and fun educational experience with 18-hands-on experiments.
Mold your own crystal geode and grow three different types of crystals that vary in color and shape. Work with real mineral specimens to learn how to determine a mineral’s chemical properties — such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content — and use your findings to identify unknown minerals. As you explore, you’ll get 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 formed again.
