Third grade geologists learned safety and collection techniques before hiking to the Simpson Rock Quarry in S. Glastonbury, CT. With goggles firmly in place and rock hammers chipping, students collected magnificent rocks and minerals! Returning to school they made  rock and mineral collections in the school science lab. Minerals such as  large books of mica, quartz and feldspar and tourmaline crystals were proudly displayed!
