Canyon Rock Presentation 3-6-12 001.JPG 274.53 KB

   Mr. Larry Hathaway, custodian at Canyon Elementary, was invited to do a rock presentation for the first-grade students at Canyon.  Mr. Hathaway has been a long time rock hound.  He told the students how he goes rock hunting in the mountains and collects rocks that he can bring home to cut and polish and turn into jewelery.  He showed the students some of the different types of rocks that he has collected and told them that some rocks are used for building materials, some rocks are used as dyes for clothing and some rocks have copper in them and are used to make copper wire.
