Rocks and minerals are the raw materials of the Earth's surface. Rocks are solid materials made up of one or many minerals, which are natural, solid chemicals. Learn about these fascinating materials of our world in the Rocks and Minerals Project Pack from In the Hands of a Child. This 60-page Project Pack includes a 16-page Research Guide that covers types of rocks, rock cycles, Mohs scale of hardness, minerals, crystals, gemstones, classes of minerals, and collecting rocks and minerals. Next, your student will use the information found in the Research Guide to complete 20 hands-on activities to make a lapbook on the science of Rocks and Minerals.
