It’s Rock Week, so let’s rock!
We’ve learnt a lot about different types of rocks this week, and now it’s time for you to head out into your neighbourhood or campground and begin collecting your favourites! You could pick them up and place them in your pocket, OR you can create your very own Rock Collection with these great tips from Andy Camper.
Let’s build a Rock Collection!
Here is what you will need to get started:
• Egg carton
• markers / pens
• bags or other containers
• rocks (obviously)
TIP #1: a magnifying glass would be handy to get a close look at some of the minerals and crystals that are within a rock, but that are too small to see with the naked eye.
TIP #2: the best rock collecting sites are quarries, road cuts or natural cliffs, and outcrops.
Follow these steps (click on the images to enlarge):
