This is a great lab to introduce the physical properties of different rocks and or minerals to students. Students love this edible rock lab where they match different types of candy bars to different rocks based on the physical properties and characteristics. This lab includes directions, a lab template/print out for the students, examples to mentor before beginning the lab with an answer key, and a word connections worksheet for introducing the main concept words before the lab! The only item that needs to be provided by the teacher are pictures of the rocks(this can be from your school textbook). This really helps students identify rocks based on physical properties. They always seem to remember the edible rock lab and the importance of knowing different physical properties! Enjoy!
