Last week for our Funnest Summer Ever!! we traveled 175 miles visiting Chiles Peach Orchard in Crozet, Green Valley Book Fair in Mt Crawford and Boxerwood Nature Center in Lexington. We studied plant life and worked on planting our own garden while we were at it. Total cost $14 plus gas (excluding books at GVBF).
This week we are focusing on rocks and geology. We are in the unique part of the country that boasts amazing rock features including the Natural Chimneys in Mt. Solon and the Natural Bridge in Rockbridge County.
We kicked off our week with a walk to the Staunton Public Library to pick up books on geology. We will read these as we learn about the different kinds of rocks and minerals that are native to our beautiful Shenandoah Valley.
We are looking forward to a fun week of exploring!
