3.References (some are too heavy)

Yoshio Okamoto:A New Method of Making and Observing Rock thin-sections for Classrooms, NAGT Earth Educators' Rendezvous Online, July 12-16, 2021, abstract.

Atlas of igneous rocks and their textures

YouTube Videos: 1) is basic, 2) is an advanced contents
These videos are excellent video for education! Part 1 contents are enough for high school  class room observation, accessory plates are not necessary in middle schools.
