Geology and Gemstone Craftsman Club
Students Discover the exciting world of geology as they sift to discover gemstones. Equipped with tools, students sift through sand and gravel containing precious gems and ancient fossils, learning about Earth’s geological wonders and sparking their curiosity. Guided by enthusiastic teachers, Mr. Cochrane and Mr. Sadler, they’ll identify and classify their finds, fostering critical thinking and teamwork. This hands-on experience will instill a sense of responsibility for preserving natural treasures and deepen their appreciation for the beauty of our planet’s history. This club is very similar to the Paleontology Club but with the addition of gemstones, arrowheads, and fossils (from places other than Florida) that can be discovered. All fossils and gemstones found are theirs to keep and will serve as touchstones and learning aids during future science classes. During this club, students will also have the opportunity to transform some of their discoveries into jewelry like necklaces, earrings, or rings.
