Junior Geologist

Today I would like to feature a guest post by my favorite Junior Geologist, Patrick. The text that follows in italics are his words. He will describe the fun project we completed while the twins were napping one day.

Patrick and the rock collection

I like to collect these: shells, rocks, and minerals. They are from my great-grandfather and my grandmother.

One day I brought a small box with a lot of minerals and rocks in it to school. I wanted my friends to see the rest of my collection, so Mom and I made a poster at home to bring to school for show-and-share.

I sorted out animals. Then I sorted out rocks and minerals.

I made a shelf that was all animals.

 I glued pictures on poster paper. I labeled each picture.
