The Mineral Society of Manitoba offers educational classroom presentations on various geological topics. Our educational presentations highlight various rock, mineral, and fossil topics through the use of verbal communication, trivia, and other activities to help keep the students engaged.
- Our presentations can range from roughly 30 minutes to an hour or more depending on various factors.
- We present to varying age groups (from elementary school children to high school students).
- An extra feature to our presentations is our "Canadian Mineral Collection Glue Cards". Our glue cards are 8.5 x 11 inch card stock broken down into 6, 9 or 12 sections, with varying information about the minerals and fossils displayed on the card. As well our two newer cards have background geological information on the back-side.
- For this activity, each of the corresponding minerals/fossils are classified by the students with the presenters help and hot glued to the cards. After the presentation the students are allowed to take home their completed glue cards to show off to their friends and families. The glue cards cost $2.00 each, to cover the cost of the printed cards and the minerals glued to said cards.
