Rock and Minerals Unit

Aloha and welcome to the weekend!!  We have been busy, busy, busy in class the last few weeks.  There are only 3 weeks left until the end of the quarter, and so much left to do.

In science we just finished up our Rocks and Minerals unit.


The students were really excited about this one.  I had them bring in some rocks to share, we looked at them with magnifying glasses and wrote down all the properties of the different rocks.


I wish we would have had more time to talk about the Earth's layers.  I found some great projects on Pinterest.

We did watch some great videos that I found on YouTube.






Kids are so into Rock and Minerals that they would be happy to continue this unit for a few more weeks!

We are actually moving into magnets which is a perfect transition.  I have a few resources that I will be using. This great unit is from Nicole over at Teaching With Style.


I also have this unit with lots of activities from Nicole Shelby.


This is another favorite of students!  I am going to really try and take some photographs of the fun experiments we have planned.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and don't forget to enter my Ellison die cut giveaway if you haven't already.  Click on the picture to take you to the original post.
