Just in time for the Christmas gift giving season the folks at DinosaursRock® have put together:

·    Two new Earth Science Educational Kits,

·    Several new Dinosaur, Fossil, Mineral & Gemstone Excavation Kits,

·    Three Geology Group Project Activity Packages, and a

·    Gems & Minerals Mining Program just for kids.

Although these new earth science resources were specifically designed to help Cub Scouts meet all the requirements to earn academic awards in geology, they should not be overlooked by parents and teachers with youngsters who enjoy getting their hands dirty and are fascinated or just curious about dinosaurs. If you’ve been searching for the right gift for a child this season, look no further!

The geology academic resource kits are similar to the ever popular Scouting Pinewood Derby car kits because everything the scout needs is included. Not only do these Cub Scout activity kits meet the minimum resource requirements for earning the Cub Scout Academics Geology Belt Loop and Geology Pin awards, they go far beyond and can easily help scouts earn additional “Collector Badges” for rocks, minerals and fossils.

These geology resource project kits are only available from DinosaursRock® at their newly launched web site, which was created exclusively as a resource for Cub Scouts, and the DinosaursRock® online Superstore. In addition to individual geology resource kits, Cub Scout Den resource kits with geology activity and project material for ten scouts is also available at a special discounted price.

The Geology Belt Loop resource package includes:

·    The required academic education materials custom made for Cub Scouts,

·    Sample collection of Sedimentary Rock,

·    Sample collection of Igneous Rock and

·    Sample collection of Metamorphic Rock.

Plus it has a surprise bonus for scouts who may also have an interest in Paleontology.

(What 7 to 10 year old boy isn’t interested in Dinosaurs?)

The Geology Pin resource package is much more comprehensive in order to meet the increased academic challenge placed on the scout to achieve the Cub Scout Geology Pin award. Some of the items this resource kit includes are:

·    Fossil reproduction materials.

·    Specimens to illustrate the Moh's Hardness Scale.

·    Genuine fossils with identification cards.

·    "Popcorn Rock" that grows into real crystals. (Secret household ingredient required)

·    Bonus Fact sheets about rocks and how geology affects our everyday life.

Without a doubt, DinosaursRock®, famous for its “We bring the Museum to You” private and public events, has put together two outstanding geology resource kits for the Cub Scout Academics awards program. Anyone with a Cub Scout in his or her family should definitely visit and consider giving the Cub Scout Academics Geology Belt Loop and Geology Pin Combo kit as a gift this holiday season. It’s a fun and educational gift that will enhance the scouting experience and surely earn the giver credit at an upcoming Cub Scout Awards Ceremony.
