Properties of Matter

More about my new career as a "teacher" later.  Ha!

A fine class of young geologists began their lab work today.  Here are some highlights from the first lab, wherein we examine the Properties of Matter:

Sometimes writing up a lab report.

Sometimes examining the specimens.

Sometime drawing the sample.

Checking the equipment list.

Preparing specimens for assays.

HCl!  Our favorite acid!
Recommended books for geology:
The Practical Geologist
Seashell on the Mountaintop
Field guides
Rock pick
Specimen bag

Have fun!
