About Geology Classes:
How These Classes Operate: Fill out the form to be added to a google classroom. There students can participate in discussions, assignments, and get the links to live clawses. Once Signed up students can attend every class, with the exception of Utah History - Geology of Utah, and Geodes Class (Kits are required for these classes.)
Geology Class Kits What's Included:
These are incredibly fun and interactive kits that include, minerals, fossils, and geology tools, and workbooks and pages including fun things like rocks you can taste, a UV light, hand lens, geodes to break open and more! Each kit includes rocks we are going over that week! You can pick and choose which kids you would like to incorperate into your classroom, but we highly recommend the Fossils, Minerals We Use Everyday, and Fluorescent Kit! ***Kits will arrive the week before your class!***
These kits are not your standard educational kits! I include things like Kaolinite (the main clay making up Wendy's Frosties), some rare and beautiful fossils, minerals that illustrate how rocks change as they move through the rock cycle, and rocks that glow under UV light! Here are 5 reasons to buy the class kits:
- Class kits make these classes an entire week long learning experiance. For 2024 we have added homework, worksheets, expiriments, and/or other continued educational activities to each kit.
- Class kits make these classes hands on! We use every kit in class to discuss and learn about rocks, minerals, fossils, mining, and geology.
- Class kits are incredible gifts to students who love rocks and minerals.
- Class Kits include exciting samples such as gemstones, meteorites, rock salt, kaolin, and more! Examin, taste, smell, and experiance geology in a whole new way!
- Give students a unique experiance that continues after class is over.

Classes are free, and kits are optional for all classes except for Utah History of Geology, and Geodes class. You are not fully enrolled in this class until it is paid. I do this class to help feed my children and I cannot do it without payment. My children help make the geology kits and help get the class ready as part of their own education. Please pay via the invoice sent on Paypal or by venmo @Adrienne-McElwain
Thank you for signing up for my geology classes! In order to continue to offer deep discounted kits, and free online geology classes I cannot offer refunds. I order pieces for these kits before classes start and do not have the overhead to hold onto extra supplies in between classes. Credit card, paypal, and even venmo business fees on processing orders ads up, and I use the tiny bit of overhead to keep offering free classes. For these reasons I am unable to make exceptions to my no refund policy.
If you signed up for one of my classes before and need to do makeup classes please email or text me. I do my best to make sure that everyone is able to attend all classes. Most makeup classes consist of attending the missed class during the next round of geology classes.
