Station #1: Sedimentary rocks and fossils. Here students layered different materials into a see-through container to see how the different layers of sedimentary rocks might come together. They also examined several pictures of fossils found in Missouri and made a "fossil" by pressing a shell into clay.

Station #4: What's that rock? Here our resident geologist had several assorted rocks available for the students to examine and to ask questions about. Students were also able to question him about the rocks they had brought from home.
Please join us next month for a program on emergency preparedness. It will be held at the MRRL Art Gallery on Thursday, May 3, from 3 to 5 p.m. No reservations are required. It is designed for ages 6 and up, but younger students are invited as well. We hope to see you there!
