Learning all about Rocks!

Mrs. Pulley

Mrs. Pulley's Kindergarten class learned all about rocks this past week.  We learned that some rocks come from volcanoes and then watched an episode of The Magic School Bus that told us all about the process!  Other rocks have layers that you can see.  We learned that some rocks can be colorful, others are sparkly. Sometimes, you might be able to find a fossil in a rock; other times there might be crystals inside.To end our rock unit, on Friday, we all brought our very own rocks to school.  We sorted them into shapes, colors, size; and at the end of the day we wrote a class rock book.  Each student made a page about the rock that they brought to school. By the end of the week, several of us decided to start our very own rock collections!
