We are Petrologists!

Today in science, we have been petrologists! Learning all about rocks…how they form, how to identify what type of rock they are and where they might have come from. We conducted three experiments on our rocks-testing them for strength, permeability and even with acid to see how they would react! The children enjoyed observing them closely through magnifying lenses and detecting the strata, crystals and even fossils that could be found. We tried to make our testing fair and came up with some great variables so that our results would be most accurate. We are creating a little rock display in the classroom so it would be great to have a few more rocks to share…
