6th Grade Rock Stars

Earlier this month, 6th grade scientists began their geology unit with a rock-seeking excursion in the shallow waters of Rock Creek, west of Connecticut Avenue. After discussing the formation of the landscape, students found a comfy spot for a read-aloud of Byrd Baylor’s Everybody Needs a Rock.
Students then searched for their own rock of choice, shared their selection criteria and observations, and transported their rocks back to the lab for further study. Note: rocks that could not be hand-carried were deemed unacceptable for this purpose.
