Rock Show!

September 14th

We held our "Rock Show" today!  The students each brought a rock collection to show off.  We had fun learning from each other and checking out all of the different rocks!    There are some pretty neat collections!  We even had a giant piece of petrified wood (thank you, Connor!).

We have learned that there are 3 types of rocks (Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic). Students spent some time trying to classify each of their rocks.  We also  know that all rocks are made from minerals.  Students used magnifying glasses to try and spot the minerals in their rocks. It was a fun afternoon.

We have a lot more fun learning to do with these collections!
