Loved:

Hannah loved the Rock kit and matching the rocks to the guide. She loves the magnifying lens. She especially loved just sharing and listening about finding different types of rocks. The instructor was wonderful, patient, and enthusiastic. My daughter said, "Now I'm addicted to rocks!"

Improvements:

It was hard to sit and listen about the rock cycle after a full day of school. Maybe a more active way of showing how the different types of rocks are formed. And a bit about how rocks can be made up of different types of elements for those who already know a bit about rocks, something jazzy so they learn something different.

Loved:

After class (when discussing the instructor) my daughter said, “Finally! Someone who likes to talk about rocks!” Thanks for an exciting and informative class. Having each kid receive their own rock specimens made the experience extra special.

Loved:

"I just liked all of it!"

Improvements:

Maybe mute some of the attendees or suggest that they mute themselves, unless they have a question. The background noise and side talking was distracting and took time away from the activities.
