Rock Science


I have a “rock box” with a hole in the end. It is filled with different kinds of rocks and the children can reach in, feel a rock and describe it without seeing it. They describe the size, texture, shape, etc. I leave it in the science center. During our study of rocks, then we investigate them with our eyes, too. They enjoy putting them in order by size, color, kind of rock, etc.
