Right before Spring Break, the Fireweeds did an activity for our geology unit. 

After we got our supplies ready, the kids were split into two groups. One group worked on team building through games. The other group used a cooperative effort to break open a geode.  When the geodes were opened, we cleaned them up and analyze the surprise inside. 

Our learning objectives were to explore the natural world with a hands-on activity. Develop communication skills and strategic planning, all while building patience. The team building game and the activity tested our ability to wait for your turn, accepting not getting your way and supporting others.
