PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Rock Labs: A Hands-On Science Investigation is created for grades 2-5 and comes with two differentiated sets of centers {for primary and upper elementary}. There are 7 hands-on stations for students to investigate their rock's properties, and 1 reflection station to determine what they think their rock is, based on their findings. Station signs are included.

I’ve taught about rocks and minerals in both 2nd and 4th grade. This activity is something I used with both grade levels and just differentiated how I presented the material {both versions are included}. This activity is meant to give students a hands-on approach to classifying rock types.

This activity can supplement the following standards/objectives:
- Describe the characteristics of different rocks.
- Identify basic properties of minerals and rocks.
- Observe rocks using a magnifying glass and draw shapes and colors of the minerals.
