Becoming Rock Investigators

This week in Earth, we have really enjoyed investigating different types of rocks for our science topic.

We started our investigation by looking at rocks in our local environment, we found lots of rocks of all shapes and sizes. We then looked at some ‘treasures of the earth’ at our investigation station in the classroom. We used magnifying glasses to carefully analyse the rocks and categorise them into different groups: metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous.
