We just started our rock unit and the first graders are rockin' it! They are learning how to observe properties in order to sort their rocks! They also learned that rocks can be used for a lot of different things, but the best kind of rock is one that you pick out...so the first graders dug for rocks and got to take one home!
We sorted rocks by color, shape, size, and texture.
We learned about sedimentary rocks and got to dig for a rock to take home...only feeling the texture for one to grab!
