Rocks and Soils


Our next topic is Rocks and Soils. This week I'd like you to think about the different types of rock and how they form.


Go outside in your garden, or even better for a walk, and see what types of rock you can find. Collect them in a container and when you get home look at them closely, with a magnifying glass if you have one. Use the prompt sheet below to answer some questions- this can be verbally.
