I use this along with hands-on rocks and minerals to enrich the experience, but all materials can be used without them.
The Rock and Mineral Information Cards can be easily cut into Montessori 3 Part Cards for a fun and challenging matching work. Detailed Teacher Tips are included with suggestions for different ways to use the versatile resources!
