This week we were lucky enough to be visited by Mr. Villeneuve, Nathaniel's uncle.
He is a GEOLOGIST!
He showed us how rock is formed.
He brought many examples of rock.
He even showed us rock that he drilled from deep in the earth!
He could tell different things about the rock after he sprayed water on it.
He was kind enough to leave his rock samples with us to explore.
Matthew took a close look at the igneous rocks.
Alex and Jack put the long rock back together like a puzzle.
Mrs. L. brought in a rock that had fossils in it!
Through careful research, we discovered it was definitely sedimentary.
Nathaniel and Bryanna took a close look together.
Madison and Cameron looked closely with the help of their magnifying glass.
What story did their rocks tell?
Thank you for your visit Mr. Villeneuve!
