Maple Valley Elementary School

Bob & Jackie Pattie visited two fourth grade classes on May 17, 2012. The focus of this presentation was volcanoes and the Geology of Washington State. This was one day before the anniversary of the St. Helens eruption. With these two sessions we had about 70 students. They also asked many questions about the volcanoes in Washington and about rocks in general during the question and answer part of the presentation. We did have many samples of Washington State specimens and each student was allowed to select a small piece of Petrified Wood to take home. The following are some pictures of this years trip to the Maple Valley Elementary School.
