Product Description:

This new kit provides an introduction to the three rock categories igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Specimens are mounted on a 5 ½" x 4 ¼" full-color card, include 6 rocks in each category, and a brief explanation of the 3 types of rock. Each rock is ½ to ¾ inch in size obsidian, pumice, scoria, rhyolite, granite, gabbro, shale, gypsum, sandstone, dolomite, conglomerate, limestone, slate, marble, schist, quartzite, gneiss, and anthracite. The card is packaged in a resealable zip lock bag. - Donna

Category Description for Rock Collections:

We have several rock-hounds here - as evidenced by the boxes of rocks that haunt the dark recesses under beds and in closets, when they're not strewn all over the floor! Of course, our "good" rock collections don't suffer the same fate. These have been used countless times in our homeschool, especially in our study of Earth Science. Kept in the schoolroom, the children are free to use them to identify other rocks or just to peruse for sheer delight. I guess you can tell that I am rather fond of rocks myself. The combinations and varieties that God has embedded in the Earth are astounding and beautiful. We had to "dig" a little for the information to stock these, but it was totally worth the effort!

I need a set of labeled rocks for when the boys study rocks.

My son is very excited about geology right now! I bought this so that he could learn more about the three main types of rocks and have the actual rocks in hand. I plan to have him do research on each one over the semester and create a notebook page about each one for science.
