Students in 4th, 6th, and 8th grade at Stokes School have been learning about rocks and minerals. To apply their knowledge, students participated in a gem mining activity provided by Diamond Del's Gem Mining Adventure where they mined for real minerals using mining ore and water flumes. After mining for minerals they used an identification chart to identify the different minerals they discovered. Students were able to take with them the collection of minerals that they discovered. This was definitely a fun learning experience for the students!
