Mining Away!

Mrs. Melissa Boviero's sixth grade science classes have been enjoying the delightful weather while gathering rock samples from around campus as part of their Geology unit.

After learning how to safely handle a hammer and chisel, students have been partaking in some real life Minecraft. The sounds of hammers clinking away at rocks have permeated throughout the Hilltop as students work hard at retrieving many types of quartz, micas, granites, schist, and even red shiny garnet gemstones!
