There are fish fossils embedded in the rocks on top of Mt. Everest. That single fact communicates the amazement and fascination with the study of Earth Science. Kids become geologists in our exclusive Rock-o-Rama Activity Kit. You set up a quarry for collecting different rocks and minerals. Working with their fellow scientists, the kids identify and classify specimens, then get to take home the rocks they have identified and labeled using on their very own rock collection cards. This is a real hands-on way to introduce kids to the wide variety and beauty of rocks around the world.

Ages 6 and up.

Unit Goals and Concepts:

  • Introduce the classification system of rock & mineral types.
  • Illustrate diversity of rock types.
  • Become "field scientists" and look for specimens.
  • Use observational skills to classify & test rock & mineral specimens.

 Materials Included:

  • One pound each of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks along with a pound of minerals to establish your quarry.
  • Rock and mineral sample collections to help young geologists identify their finds.
  • A Basic Mineral Testing Kit for the young geologists to use in identifying their "discoveries."
  • Rock collection cards (4.5" x 5.25") to be used by each participant to display, identify, and take home their findings.
  • Baggies for each participant to take his or her project home in
  • Books and other resource materials.
  • Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects.
