This week we were very lucky to have a special visit from a local Albertan geologist! She taught us about different sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks and how they are formed. We even got to see an oil sands sample, as well as a few fossils and trace fossils! These help us piece together our story of Alberta by learning about what sort of plant and animal life was here before us and how glaciers swept across our country leaving behind a trail of evidence as they went.
This was an exciting visit as we have been learning to be "mini-geologists" through our studies of rocks and minerals.
ASK ME ABOUT: What is a trace fossil? What trace fossil did we see that came from prehistoric worms?
