Field Trip to Lannon Stone Products Jackson Quarry

A highlight of the week of October 30-November 3 was our field trip to the quarry! The workers gave us a guided tour, connected to our science unit on Pebbles, Sand, and Silt.

We were amazed by all the big machinery as we drove in!

The green machine crushes big rocks into smaller pieces.

We loved being able to get off the bus and explore some machines that had been disabled for our safety.

We found some great rocks to take home. Some had fossils or crystals!

A HUGE thank you to Jackson Quarry for inspiring these 1st grade geologists!
