What educators are saying

Learning involving food is always a great combination for my students. Very engaging activities with lots of learning!
We didn't get FOSS kits this year due to COVID, so I needed to find a unit that would be fun and hands on. This was perfect! Thank you!


Rock food, investigations, and experiments…need I say more? Are you ready for some rocks and minerals fun?!? This until is packed with over 100 pages of resources and materials to engage your kids in an earth materials study by giving them an opportunity to experience minerals, rocks, soil, and fossils firsthand! In this pack, you will find lesson plans to help structure your rocks and minerals unit. Each plan comes with all of the necessary resources and materials to engage your students in eight hands-on lessons and activities.
