Rocks Enrichment- We kicked off our Earth Materials Unit last week with an enrichment activity called “Dig It” from High Tech High Touch.
It was made possible by Ignite funding! Our expert, Miss. Mina, taught the children about the rock cycle, and how different rocks come from different layers of the earth. They were able to pan for rocks themselves and explore hands-on the different types of rocks and attempt to identify the names of the rocks with charts as well as seeing if they were magnetic or not. The children also practiced talking about the properties of the rocks- smooth or bumpy, hard or soft, etc. The kids absolutely loved this learning opportunity and were able to take home 8 rocks of their own to begin their very own rock collection.
