For pre-access, we looked at rocks or more specifically; diamonds. Diamonds are called the ‘King of Gems’ because they are pretty and they are really hard to cut.
We looked at different gemstones. I asked each of the students when their birthday is and we discovered which gemstones related to their birthdays. After this, we chose which gemstones were our favorites.
After this, we discussed where we can find different gemstones and in particular; diamonds. Diamonds are found in Africa and we have to dig them out do the ground. This was very exciting!
Here are some of our students seeing which gemstones are related to their birthdays!
