List of Geology Stuff for Kids

Geology is not a science that many people think much about.  My daughter graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Geology.  I’m not sure that she was even aware of a Geology degree until she got into college.

Most children are interested in collecting rocks at different ages in their childhood.  I think my daughter said she learned about rocks in 4th or 5th grade.  Some children are more interested than others.

I’m so glad my daughter was able to discover this interest in college because it really wasn’t something that I even thought  to offer her to explore an interest in.  You really never know…  I imagine that her teacher in 4th or 5th grade sparked an interest in what she taught that planted a seed for her future.  🙂  I did talk to one of her teachers, Mrs. Gregg, that did teach her a unit on rocks.  I’m not sure if she was the only one, but I am thankful for her and any others that planted those seeds.
