Nature and Science at Wonder Works: Rocks for Play and Learning
6445 W. North Ave.
Oak Park, IL 60302
There will be lots of rocks, including big rocks to touch, smaller rocks to sort, and tiny rocks to sift from the art-room sandbox. Collect coal and iron ore hauled by our O-scale model railway, plus gravel used to support real railroad tracks (including gray limestone, red granite, and pick quartzite). The play-dough table will be set up as a quarry, where diggers and dump trucks excavate rocks and crystals and wooden trains haul them all away.
