  • Education | Orton Geological Museum
    see the Arrange a Museum Tour section Geology Program for Youth Groups Starting in a conference room I explain how minerals are identified and how the three main types of rocks igneous sedimentary metamorphic are formed as I pass around about 40 good samples We then go to the exhibit hall and discuss fossils and the geologic history of Ohio as I pass around real fossils including a trilobite horn coral and mammoth tooth Each part takes about 50 minutes and it is best to do them back to back so plan on spending almost two hours The program works best for kids in fourth grade and above and a minimum of nine kids is required I can comfortably handle groups of up to about 24 people but can move in a few more chairs if needed and up to that number I encourage as many parents grandparents and siblings to attend as possible adults tell me they get as much out of the program as the kids do Some groups like to do it at their regular meeting time and others like to have it as a special field trip on an evening or weekend I can do it
