Science Rocks!

Before the winter break, students were busy in science class observing different kinds of rocks. As they observed the rocks using hand lenses, the students were encouraged to think of different ways to classify, or sort, the rocks. Some of the observable properties that they came up with were: size, shape, color, and texture. When school starts back tomorrow, we will review these ideas and begin talking about weathering and erosion on earth.
Thanks for checking in!
