The kids love collecting rocks,
all kinds of rocks.
It must run in our family,
my grandma collects heart shaped rocks
for a friend of hers.
After we completed our Supercharged Science Review,
we began looking at the mineralogy experiments in Unit 20: Earth Science.
We have a huge collection of rock and mineral samples. I have purchased some and we've found many.
We've used a combination of those to do some of the lessons.
We've completed the color streak test, Mohs' hardness scale, Cleavage and fracture, and the acid test.
There are a lot more to dig into. There's even a recipe for rock candy.
