Slide of the Month- Rock and Mineral Specimens

May 2024

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour
Boy's Life Dec. 1971,  p. 88
Original design:  John Taylor

    I've always been fascinated by rocks ever since I took Geology Merit Badge. Not to the level for obsession but there are times I pick up a rock I'm interested in and put it in my pocket. So when I say this slide has taken me three hours to make, this takes in account of the time I took to collect these rocks.

Now I'm not going to go into what each rock (but the red one came from Philmont) is but how the slide is made. I took the large flat stripped rock as my base and super glued the other rocks in place on the flat rock. I also glued a wire loop to the back.
