Exeter-Milligan Update: Fifth Graders learn about minerals

The Exeter-Milligan fifth graders, with the tutelage of their teacher Mr. Brent Zoubek, have been hard at work learning about and exploring different minerals.  They have learned about what a mineral is, how they form, and how to identify them by using the different properties.  We have discussed the minerals that we use in our everyday lives and the importance of recycling so we have these things for years to come.
