Rocks & Minerals

Today we found our way back to the Piedmont Environmental Center for another lesson on nature! The Boys & Girls were tasked with learning the different characteristics of rocks, and identifying features of common minerals. First, we went into the rock lab to learn about texture, luster, and the slate test. After learning about graphite, quartz, mica, feldspar, fluoride and other common types, we were ready to take a hike and find the different rocks and minerals in nature!
