Rock and mineral kits are great ways to teach hands-on identification useful in the real world. There’s a saying that the best geologist is the one who has seen the most rocks – give your students a head start!
Rocks and minerals can be ordered from many places on the web. DJ Minerals is a trusted site with affordable, organized, and labeled rock and mineral kits. You can also borrow class kits from the SJSU Science Education Research Center.
