Geology Rocks!

Today, discover different types of rocks as you go on an adventure around your home. Observe what makes them similar or different from each other, then write or draw what you’ve come up with.

For this activity, you’ll need a magnifying glass or any other item that can help you take a closer look. A ruler or a scale might help, and you may want something to write or draw in, such as a notebook or some paper. Go on an adventure and let us know what you find!
