"My Pet Rock and Me Diary" is a fun activity if you are teaching your students about rocks.
Materials Needed: "My Pet Rock and Me Diary", rocks, wiggle eyes, and a "house". You can purchase the rocks, or you can take your class on a walk to collect rocks. I purchased all materials from Hobby Lobby. The students will adhere the wiggle eyes to their rocks and decorate the houses. Students will keep their rocks in the houses to transport them to and from school safely.
"My Pet Rock and Me Diary".
Page 1- A set of directions for completing the diary.
Page 2- Students will complete an "All about My Pet Rock" profile.
Pages 3-16- Students will complete diary entries and "take" photographs of activities they do with their rocks. Students can draw their photographs or take actual photographs...your choice.
This diary will take a week to complete (7 diary entry pages and 7 photograph pages).
A rubric is included.
I hope you and your students enjoy this activity!
