Wonder Monday With The Whales Turns Gold!

The Whales learned all about the process of gold jewelry making this week, thanks to the fabulous wonderings of one of their peers. We learned that gold comes from deep inside the earth and when gold is taken from the earth it looks like a rock. We discovered that people must melt the gold with fire before pouring it into some things called molds that help the gold remain in a specific shape. After pouring the gold into the molds, then jewelry makers must polish until it shines. Jewelry makers have to use fire, carving tools, polishers, and more! Each Whale was given a special gold rock from our Wonder Monday presenter. Keep following your wonderings, Whales!
