Hackley Rocks the Hackery...with Rocks!

Just before our Holiday break, 6th Grade science students worked with Mr. Lipin and Mr. Molter in our Hackery makerspace to create artwork with Hackley and non-Hackley rocks.
This project represented the culmination of their Geology studies thus far. Students mined and tumbled Hackley rocks, learned about the properties of minerals and rocks, and learned how these specimens were formed. Projects included resin structures as decorative items, wire wrapped rocks, rock friendship bracelets, and necklaces. All projects completed by students were exceptionally gneiss! (LOL)
