This term in Science Hazel and Oak class have been learning about rocks.
Over the last few weeks we have completed some experiments to develop of knowledge on different types of rocks (igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic) and the different properties they have.
We created igneous rocks by pouring warm melted chocolate over ice to represent how igneous rocks are formed by magma cooling and then hardening.
We also made sedimentary rocks using rice crispies, chocolate pieces, and melted marshmallows to represent the layers of different rocks compressing together to form sedimentary rocks.
We explored different rocks and how they look and feel.
This week we completed an experiment to find out which rocks were durable, had density and whether they were hard or soft.
