Austyn decided that he felt like learning more about rocks and minerals. We spent a morning going through his rock collection. We did experiments to the rocks.
He made little labels. He printed the name of the rock on each and put a letter to indicate what type of rock each one is. This particular rock kit had activities that seemed to be set up to be done over a period of time, but because he is so interested in this subject we finished almost all of them in one morning!
If you look closely at the picture above you'll also see two meteorites, a dinosaur bone fossil and a man-made mineral. He has started a collection.
