Goal

A request for rocks of different varieties to be ordered from an official Science Catalog to help students recognize and understand that the Earth is made up of many different types of rocks.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will be working at different centers analyzing the different types of rocks and sorting them into groups. They will have discussions among their group to participate as geologists to categorize them. This will help students use their different modalities to use their sense of touch, smell, and of course vision to learn how scientists perform in the field when finding rocks from our Earth. They will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas with other students and compare and contrast their ideas which will allow them to come up with a conclusion as a group. This will give them an opportunity to collaborate with their team. They will also observe and draw different types of rocks with the assistance of the Art Teacher.
 

 

Benefits to my students

This rock exploration will help students recognize and understand that the Earth is made up of many different types of rocks. This will assist students using their rock comparisons and drawings to understand the properties as they learn the rock cycle.
The added benefit is the collaboration among the teachers in different fields of study to enhance student learning.
