Rock Preview!

Hey Science Friends,
I thought I would post this to get you started thinking about ROCKS. If you do not have a rock collection and you want to teach rocks, this might be a fun way to start. This is a fun Parent and Child activity that extends your field investigations to the homes of your children. Who wouldn't love homework like this? Since I have a rock collection, I am using this to help collect specific rocks for some of the investigations we will be doing in class. I know what you are thinking... what if I have NO ROCKS AT ALL? You can still investigate rocks with simple playground rocks that the children find at school. You would be surprised if you look real close they are not all the same.
