Sign Up For Classes Starting in October Now! 

This is a full practical geology course! We will cover rocks, minerals, and fossils. How we use rocks and minerals every day, rocks and minerals we eat, and deadly rocks and minerals. We will cover some of Utah's history, mining history, and mining urban legends. This course is designed to engage kids and adults (if parents want to sit in) to learn and ENJOY geology! Once you sign up you will get a link to a google classroom, and an invoice. Invoices are due upon receipt. I have a limit of 35 students per track so that I can answer questions. Students are encouraged to talk, be engaged, and ask questions please make sure they have access to a mic (they can type into chat if they do not have a mic). The class will meet Thursday mornings but we will have a classroom discussion going all week!

I do not strictly enforce an age group for this class, however, due to the vocabulary and experiments my recommended age range is 8-18. That being said I have had children as young as 5 enjoy these classes (I have also had some feel overwhelmed so please judge your student's interest).

Geology Classes Coming Up:

September 21st - Fluorescent or Glowing Minerals! 

September 28th - How Animals Use Rocks & Minerals 


These classes are FREE to attend (with the exception of the Geodes class) so that all homeschool families and those interested in geology can attend. All kits are options, however my children help me make the rocks and mineral kits to fund their own education so please consider buying a kit or two to support them. 

Kit recommendations: 
Rocks and Minerals Kit is used for both Rocks and Minerals and The Rock Cycle class so one kit will do both classes. The Fossils kit is valued at over $100 and is absolutely incredible! The fluorescent kit will allow you to find fluorescent items around your house and continue learning afterwards (it comes with a professional UV light)! Bonus you can go rockhounding with us with the light! 


Each class is taught at 9 am MST on Thursday and lasts 45 minutes. You do not have to be in Utah to take my classes just please convert the time to make sure you know when they are. I have a limit of 35 students per track so that I can answer questions. 


What's Included:

Kit are optional but greatly enhance the learning experience. Each kit is unique to the class and packed with rocks, minerals, fossils, and geology tools, and workbooks and pages including fun things like rocks you can taste, a UV light, a pocket microscope, geodes to break open and more depending on the class! 

These kits are not your standard educational kits! I include things like Kaolinite (the main clay making up Wendy's Frosties), Gemstones such as Rubies, Fluorescent Samples, UV Light, and much much more! Example of the kit week by week: Week 1 will include 3 Sedimentary Rocks, 3 Igneous, 3 Metamorphic, 3 Minerals, and a pocket microscope! Week 3 will include 12 Fossils (This week's kit alone is worth over $100!!!) with Ammonite, Orthosceras, Sharks Teeth, Fossil Shells, and Amber! Week 4 will include Kaolinite, rock salt, potash, Feldspar, Selenite, and more minerals we use every day! Week 6 will include 8 Fluorescent stones and a UV (Black) Light! Although the week 8s kit only includes 8 incredibly fluorescent stones kids will find that other stones from other week's kits also fluoresce. These are just some quick examples! 



Rockhounding Trip - HALLOWEEN 

We do an annual rockhounding trip for homeschool families the weekend of Halloween to Milford. If you'd like to join us the trip is free! We do a trunk or treat, and then rock hound for Fluorescent minerals in the dark afterwards. IT IS COLD, but it is incredibly fun! If you would like to do this with us I highly recommend buying the Fluorescent kit now and keeping it for the trip! 



I run the Crystal Festival in Layton annually the next one is November 5th and 6th. Children enrolled as students in these classes (any track) will get free passes to the Kid's Corner Activities at The Crystal Festival!

Q&A About Geology Classes 

Q. What is the Target Age? 
A. I recommend ages 8-18 for these classes due to the topics and vocabulary. That being said I have had children as young as 5 absolutely love being in these classes. I do not enforce an age.

Q. What Times are These Classes? 
A. The Classes are held from 9am to 9:45am MT! If you are not in Mountain Time please plan accordingly. 

Q. When will kits ship? 
A. The week before your classes. 

Q. Can my children share a kit? 
A. Each child needs a kit, however, only the first child in a family needs the FULL KIT. Many aspects of each kit can be shared that is why I have supplemental kits as an option.

Q. Is this course reimbursable through MTH or Harmony? 

A. Yes. I have had no issues with students getting this course reimbursed through either. I send a full receipt with all necessary information on it to have the course reimbursed.
