In Ms. Rumpf's 2nd grade class, they have been learning about rocks.
Mrs. Hanson, Logan's mom, came to class and did a lesson on mining minerals. Students used different tools (paperclip and toothpick) to mine chocolate chips out of chocolate chip cookies.
This lesson modeled of how miners mine the earth for minerals. Students learned about different minerals that are mined and the different jobs it takes to mine minerals.
It was a great lesson!
