Prospectors Mystery Rock Workshop

Prospectors Mystery Rock Workshop
Ages 6-11
 
In this workshop you will get to excavate for valuable gems, fascinating rocks, and some ancient fossils. You will experience the thrill of discovery, much as prospectors did. You will get an excavation tool, specimen brush, log book, sorting trays and labels. You will, as a Prospector, record the color, both wet and dry texture, and the ability to float for each of the 10 specimens you dig out. Make an educated guess with our help to whether each one is a rock, gem, or fossil. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to identify each item and learn from us its exact name and classification.
