Rocks!

Lesson: Science

Class: Class 3 Year: 2016 - 2017

We kick started our rocks topic off by making chocolate rocks! The children made examples of sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. The sedimentary rocks showed different layers whereas the metamorphic showed the change in the sedimentary rock due to heat and pressure. Then the children moved around the classroom making observations of the different rocks that were available. After that they decided whether the rock was igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic.
