Rocks and Soils
In your last week before half-term, I asked you to learn all about the different types of rock and how they form. These are: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.
Now I'd like you to learn the difference between natural and man-made rock. Please complete the activity sheet below (page 2), using the pictures I've provided if you can. Use the internet to identify which rocks are igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. Afterwards, you could find out how the man-made rocks are made by researching on the internet.
Optional task (if you have the resources)
Below are some investigation sheets about rock durability and permeability. You need to have different types of rocks to hand in order to complete these.
I love to paint rocks Why not go out and collect some rocks to paint. You could leave them around your neighbourhood to cheer people up or surprise your friends and family by leaving them on their doorstep! Have fun
