Each sheet is a quarter page of standard letter size paper which has the name of, and information about, one of the minerals, rocks or fossils we have on the "Kids Table" at our show.
Most of the information was drawn from Wikipedia then simplified, condensed, added to and edited for clarity and brevity.
I'm also planning a "rack" to display/distribute them from. This would also be a place to include information not specific to specimens, such as Mohs scale, Rock Cycle, and Geologic time lines.
It is our intent to act as a central location for clubs and members to add to and improve the project. Please send any improvements or additions to firstname.lastname@example.org
You are free to download and use the sheets as long as they are distributed free of charge.
Sheet Document (in Open Document format)
Open document format is "readable" by microsoft products but they deliberatly mis-read the formating information so the document will not look correct.
I recomend downloading the FREE Open Office or LibreOffice packages.
Sheet Document (as PDF)
The Documents have four different sheets per page. In use, each sheet is duplicated (multiplied?) so that there are four of the same sheet on a page making it easier to control the numbers of each type of sheet to be printed.

Display stand construction.
Each stand is a 2 1/2 in. piece of 2X4 with a beveled front edge, a 1/2 in. groove in the top for the bottom of the sheets and another groove to accept a 3 1/2 in. by 4 in. piece of 1/8 in. masonite (hardboard)
