K-3, Unit Five "Rock Park"
Introduction & Teacher Background
However, the study of rocks has an advantage for young students- rocks are colorful, interestingly shaped, obvious to see all over the ground, and they don't move much! The "groundwork" for geologic literacy is found in the way children observe and sort rocks naturally. Our job as educators is to introduce some structure to these natural explorations.
