Rock Detectives

 

Otters and Badgers! You are now officially Rock Detectives! In your garden, I would like you to find some different types of Rocks. Then,  you can begin your quest to become rock and fossil experts and start to build up exhibits for your Amazing Rock and Fossil Museum by observing, grouping, drawing, describing and naming rocks that you have found.

Task

 

Using the Rocks that you have found, I would like you to make detailed and labelled drawings of 6 common rocks and write descriptions of their observable features using the table below. You can copy and draw a table in your books if you wish to do so.

 

You can group them in different ways  according to their observable features and attributes.
