Good but - I used the lab in my Earth to Space science class a fourth year science class in Texas High schools.the students and I liked the samples themselves. I liked the graphing the depth if the ash lab section. the students and I struggled with the parts of the lab and the teacher answer sheet gave he answer but offered little explanation. I plan to use the material again but going to have to get some
