Teamwork and Problem Solving at its best!


as told by Kathy Rusert,  Mena, AR

Teaching students about the 3 different rock types in Arkansas, these second graders were making a book
to take home and share with parents.  For each type, they were to tape down a sample.  Basalt is an Arkansas
igneous rock, sandstone a sedimentary rock, and slate is an example of metamorphic rock.  All was going good
until we ran out of slate for them to tape down!  One very observant second-grader paused, thought a bit, then
said he knew where there was slate we could find–they had just used it on the parking lot! 

Teamwork and problem-solving at its best.
