Everybody Needs a Rock

4 Hour Experience at Your Home

Join Teacher Carmel for a geological adventure in learning! After reading the book "Everybody Needs a Rock," Carmel will guide the children through inquiry, and lead kids on a rock scavenger hunt to find the perfect rock to study, paint, and make their very own (Carmel also brings her own in case rocks prove to be elusive). This experience incorporates an optional, delicious, healthy "rock cookie" and fruit snack activity to be enjoyed in the garden or kitchen with friends. Please let us know ahead of time of any food restrictions.

(opt) This experience works well outside, weather permitting, and easily translates to an enriching, indoor experience.

What Parents are Saying

Carmel was incredible! She clearly has a ton of experience teaching young children and our daughter had a blast!


- Todd R.

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.

Ms Carmel gave our kids a super fun experience with their friends and helped us out while we had to work over fall break. She was great with the kids and kept them engaged, learning and having fun!
