Calling All Rock Collectors!

This information is also going home in handout form today. 

Hi Parents & Guardians,

As our summative project for Rocks and Minerals this year we will be creating rock collections. Each student will sort, classify, and carry out experiments on their collection of rocks as part of their final mark in Science.

To help, we’re asking each student to please bring in:

  • one egg container (12 slots)
  • 12 different rocks

Rocks can be collected from around the house, schoolyard, or neighbourhood. Be careful collecting rocks near running water! Polished rocks purchased from a store are OK, too.

Important Note: Testing requires scratching and scraping of the rocks. Rocks may be damaged during the experiments. Please don’t send in any rocks you don’t want damaged.

Thank you for your help,

Mr. Little
