Mammoth School Caverns at Public Library

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Have you ever been to Kartchner Caverns?  Do you know how a cavern forms?  What is the difference between a stelactite and a stelagmite?  If you would like to know any of the answers to these questions, come to Mammoth Public Library (125 N. Clark St., Mammoth) from Feb. 6th – 13th to learn all about caverns.

Mammoth Elementary STEM School Room 34 2nd and 3rd grade is inviting anyone in the Tri-Community to come and see the caverns that we made.  Our caverns will be on display at the Mammoth Public Library from Feb. 6th – 13th.  The library is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 12 to 8 p.m., Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m.

We went to Kartchner Caverns for a field trip.  Then we decided to make our own caverns to help teach people about what they would see if they went to Kartchner Caverns.  We made our caverns out of egg cartons.  We cut them and glued them and painted and designed.

If you come to Mammoth Public Library, you will see stelactites, bacon/draperies, stalagmites, fried eggs, soda straws, columns, and the strawberry room.  If you can make it to see our caverns you will be impressed.
