In this packet, I've included 12 photos of rocks from my classroom. If you do not have rocks - please use these photos to complete the activities in the packet!
This packet is intended for students in grades 1 and 2, it does not emphasize the differences between igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Rather, it encourages little ones to notice that not all rocks are the same and it helps them to record the differences they see themselves.
Worksheet 1: "Examining Rocks" Draw the different minerals and patterns seen in rocks
Worksheet 2: What are rocks made out of? Count the minerals
Worksheet 3: Describing rocks - Circle the characteristics of 4 different rocks
Worksheet 4 - Sorting rocks -Students group rocks according to color, texture or patterns
MATCHING GAME: I've included 12 photos of rocks from my classroom. Many buyers have asked me for the names of these rocks and a matching game. Even though I think this may be difficult for my first graders, my second graders could certainly do it! So I've included 3 options for a matching game: option 1: match the rock up to a description (example: "This rock is made from dead sea creatures' seashells. It is called limestone."), option 2: match the rock up to a card with 1 clue (example: shell), option 3 - match the card up to the actual rock name (example: limestone)
Mini - booklet entitled "Where Do Rocks Come From?" introduces students to Iggy, Seddy, and Morphie - describing in simple terms where igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks come from. Uses 3 pieces of paper to create a 6 page mini-booklet your kids will love!
There is a 7 slide slideshow included to show your kids - cool rock facts!
Make a home for a little pet rock! Box pattern included, fill with shredded paper, have your little ones find a rock, add a smile, and give it a home! A fun way to wrap up a unit on rocks!
