In kindergarten, students explore different types of rocks. Make a personal connection with this fun lesson. Explore birthstones! Kindergartners love knowing that their birthday has a special stone. This power point includes a video to explain what a rock is and gives an opportunity to explore NON-examples of rocks (difficult for kindergartners to do!)
The power point shows clear pictures of the 12 birthstones and includes an organizational chart for the teacher.
If you decide to have students paint individual rocks, a chart is included!
The power point also gives writing extension ideas.
I have used this lesson in my kindergarten classroom as well as during science specials.
