We’ve been having such a good time sorting, organizing and learning about gemstones. These are a few of our favourites. We are lucky to have a gem shop that has lots of things for little folks with little bits of collected money to choose from. We found a few books at our local library that have helped us learn about our collection.
Canada’s Rocks and Minerals by Joanne Richter is an early reader that is great for learning about our own local rock histories. Learn about Rocks and Minerals has some great projects that show how rocks are formed and how they are used. I think this gemstone poster would be a great learning tool too.
I love it when we all get excited about a topic. Then it’s as much fun for me as it is for them.
