rocks

 

In Mrs. Mullan's Earth Science class, sixth-grade students braved the cold weather to play the role of rocks journeying through the Rock Cycle. The class has been learning about rocks and minerals and the relationship between the two. Students are learning the five properties of minerals and how to test for these properties. The class is also learning how to use different characteristics of each rock group to identify the various rocks. Mrs. Mullan brought the fun outside by setting up stations for the girls to travel through the Rock Cycle. Sixth grade really enjoyed this hands-on activity.
