Igneous Rock Science Kit
Learn how igneous rocks are formed from molten rock when it cools! Includes 15 rocks, educational guide, streak plate and magnifier.
These very affordable sets include 15 specimens measuring ½" to 1", an identification guide, and a plastic magnifier. Rocks are packaged in a divided plastic tray and stored in a sturdy cardboard box. Learn how igneous rocks are formed from lava; sedimentary rocks by wind, water, and weather; and metamorphic rocks by extreme heat and pressure. If you have a beginner rock hound, these kits would be nice starter sets.
A new addition to this set of collections is the ROCKIT. You'll receive all 3 sets, exactly as they are packaged individually, for a discounted price. ~ Donna
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!
