Get “down to earth” as students test an assortment of rocks to classify them and learn about Earth’s geological history. Students will study features including color, texture, and magnetism to determine what rocks they have. We will also look at the rock cycle and how different rock types tell us about both the long history and the recent changes of the Earth.
