Y3 Rock Geologists!
The investigative young geologists in Y3 have been grouping and comparing various sweets according to their properties ( texture, shape, layered etc..). After that, they discussed the features of different types of rocks, where they used their knowledge to identify man-made ( brick, concrete) and naturally occurring rock. The children organised natural rock into three distinct categories; igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. We even handled some igneous rock from the Volcano Vesuvius, located in Naples, Italy!
