Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:
- Discover the laws of nature which create crystals deep inside the Earth, and perform experiments like shuttle astronauts who grow ultra-pure crystals in the vacuum and weightlessness of space.
- Geodes is the perfect and most exciting way to learn about rock formations, volcano eruptions and crystals.
- Discuss how crystals reflect light and shine the way they do because of all their many flat sides.
- The word "geode" comes from the Greek word for Earth because people believed the the dark unopened rock geode resembled a mini dark Earth.
- This is the perfect lesson to discuss "don't judge a book by its cover" because the outside of a geode looks ugly yet the inside contains beautiful crystals.
