Rock Hunts are fantastic in the younger grades-they are always fascinated by rocks! If it is possible, go outside to search for rocks.
Students then spend time observing thier rocks looking at characteristics like: harndess, size, grainy, texture, color, etc. Students create a book of their rock observations they can share or use to compare different rocks!
Newly added...Metrics measuring tools!
Lots of options for pages now :)
