This lesson plan can be broken down into 3-5 days. It includes three engaged learning sessions where students discover the three types of rocks together. It also includes yummy foods to snack on and keep you going that extra stretch before recess. This lesson plan also includes a foldable for students to put in their Science Notebooks! ;) Last, and favorite of all, it includes my original We Will Rock You song which is so adorable to watch your kids sing. HINT: I made up hand gestures to go with each line to help students remember the words. If you happen to have assorted rocks, as I did, do a introductory lesson where students get to explore the rocks together. I did this and it was definitely helpful during the learning process for students.
I cannot express enough how much students LOVED learning this unit. Once, my principal came up to me and said she asked every 2nd grade class questions about rocks during lunch, and my students knew every single question perfectly [oh so proud moment].
