Let's Rock!

Y3 have been carefully observing, describing and comparing rocks as part of their new science learning.

The children have also been Geologists (scientists who study a planet's solid features, like soil, rocks, and minerals. They carried out an investigation to determine which rocks were harder (scratch test), which were more permeable than others (water droplet test) and which rocks dissolved slightly with acid (vinegar test).

We have some great books about rocks and fossils in our school library and so the children looked at them, with their friends, and made a 'Rock Fact' poster which they will use to share their facts with others.
