The Hard Rock Challenge in Year 3

We are still being rock stars in Year 3 and yesterday we started classifying, or grouping, rocks, based on their observable characteristics. What was the texture like? What about the colour? The composition? Was it porous? Do we think it is permeable or impermeable? We justified all of our findings and then rocked out with our rocks by our lovely new ‘Geology rocks!’ display, covered in fabulous scientific drawings of rocks, done last week.

We were also treated to the sight of a real geode. It doesn’t look terribly spectacular from the outside, but the inside is magnificent!
