Cascade Elementary School

Bob and Jackie Pattie and Bill Cook visited the Third Grade classes on April 25, 2012 to make a presentation on the Geology of Washington State. This is the fourth year that we have gone to the Cascade Elementary School in Renton and this year we had two sessions for about 130 students. After the discussion of the geology of the state they had an opportunity to ask question and handle many samples of Washington State specimens. After many questions the students were able to pick a small piece of Petrified Wood to take home. The following are some pictures of this year’s trip to the Cascade Elementary School.
