Your students will learn the techniques a geologist employs to identify rocks and classify them into their different groups and the science behind how they are formed. This is a hands-on workshop where students will have a variety of rocks to practice their identification skills and a selection of soils to investigate facilitating students to determine what the parent rock was. Students will use Moh’s hardness sets to ascertain a rocks hardness and microscopes to see what the eye can’t. This is a great workshop to follow on from the Rock Cycle.
Please note the above outcomes are based on Science Understanding.
