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!|
