19.2: Five Things You Learned From a Senior Member

So that you‘ll be sure kids really interact with their senior members, tell them in advance that you‘ll expect them to come back with a list of the five most important things their senior member taught them. In fact, you might even give kids a numbered sheet, with space for them to fill in, as shown on the next page.

And their list doesn‘t have to be restricted to just things about rocks, fossils, or lapidary arts. Perhaps the senior member taught patience, or a sense of responsibility, or caring for others, or a sense of fun, humor, and curiosity. It‘s hoped kids will come away from this experience having learned not just stone-cold facts, but values and interpersonal skills, as well.
