Product Description

Your students will love this fantastic pack of science activities, ideal for supporting teaching of rocks and soils! Included are seven activities:

-Describe it!

Students identify the rocks in the photographs and describe their appearance and texture.

-Sort it!

Print, laminate and cut up the cards. Students match the rocks (a) to their properties (b) and uses (c). Alternative UK spelling option included.

-Match it!

Students sort the images into those that are electrical conductors and those that are electrical insulators

-Use it!

Students look at the photographs (slate roof tiles, marble archway, granite kitchen surface and writing chalk). They write about why the

properties of each particular rock suit the purpose it is being used for in the photograph.

-Investigate it!

Students plan and carry out an investigation to test rock permeability.

-Observe it!

Students carry out a simple experiment to separate the materials in clay, loamy and sandy soil. They draw diagrams of their findings.

Included are detailed, clear instructions on how to set up the activities. Also included is a KWL (what I know already, what I would like to know and what I learned) for student to complete prior and after the unit.

Please note: Some of the activities require additional resources. These include samples of different rock types (i.e. chalk, limestone, sandstone, marble, granite and slate), magnifying lenses, clear containers for soil experiment and pipettes.

Enjoy!
