Culminating activities at the end of an Earth Science unit study of rocks and minerals need not turn into a pile of dust! Turn your class into “Rockin” Writers, creating a memorable class book titled ROCKIN’ ABC‘s!
You can also add the humorous bonus activity of writing “Rock, Rock “ Jokes and reading them to each other.
The Rockin ABC's project is a class ABC book, based on the study of rocks and minerals, where each student is assigned a letter of the alphabet and researches a rock or mineral that begins with that letter. The project explains how to construct a hard copy or online copy of the class book.
As a bonus super funny activity the students enjoy are "Rock Rock" jokes. Students make their own individual booklets using a rock and word play to craft their own jokes incorporating the vocabulary used from the earth science lesson. We then share them and the funny jokes are enjoyed by all. They can also be displayed for other classes to enjoy!
