Students learn about geology

As a middle school science teacher, Lisa Wright was motivated to bring the state required TEKS to “real life” for her students.

For six weeks her students became geologists. They spent time studying igneous rocks, metamorphic rocks and sedimentary rocks. By the end of the six weeks they were able to identify nine different rocks and note if they were intrusive or extrusive.

Wright also had the opportunity to have Rocky Arrell come share his knowledge and passion for geology with her class. 

Arrell is in the oil business and has a degree in petroleum land management. According to Arrell, in order to be successful, he needed to acquaint himself with what is going on with the land around the area. 

“Having a knowledge of geology helps me make business decisions”, Arrell said.

Arrell and his wife have lived in Cuero for over 20 years where she teaches seventh grade.
