The January S.T.E.M. Activity Kit was on

Geology & Paleontology



This month, we learned about Geology & Paleontology.


Geology is an Earth science that focuses on the Earth’s physical structure, components, history, and the processes that occur on it. Paleontology is a branch of science concerned with the fossilization of animals and plants. This month, we will explore both areas and understand their similarities and differences while also learning key concepts from each field.


In this activity kit, we discussed the following topics:

Rock & Mineral Identification

Rock layers
