Rocks and Minerals

They began using the scientific method of finding out the
density, hardness, and types of rocks.
The children were wanting to know about what is beneath the earth's surface. We continued to find out by going to the Science lab. 4th and 5th grade students showed the many differences and forms rock come in.

Does rocks absorb water?

They were able to go the Geo Science center in Tulsa. They showed them many different types of rocks. They learned about fossil fuels that come from rocks. They also were able to see fossils and bones that became rock.
 We looked at Andy Goldsworthy's art. They created art with the rocks.

They adopted a rock. They found out where the rock was born. Discussed it life before and how it many grow and change. They dressed the rock and gave the rocks names. They presented their rocks to the class.
