And sometimes, they even roll.
Are there any, more intelligent things we can learn
about our geological friends?
Today, we will simply make observations of some rock samples. Before we begin, you need to recreate this sheet at right. Record your observations for three rocks on each sheet (You will need to make multiple copies to have room for all of the specimens.
Draw each rock, and use colored pencils to replicate its colors, patterns, and textures.
Next, for each rock specimen, record information about all of the following. Remember, a true scientist records the most accurate information. Get the details in there wherever possible!
Always refer to the Learning Intentions and
Success Criteria for help along the way!
In the next module, you will be asked to find out which type of rock each of your specimens is. To prepare, feel free to look up the following:
