You could take a picture of your work and upload it to Dojo if you’re able to.



LI: Explore properties of rocks


A rock is not just a rock!
Have you ever noticed that not all rocks or stones are the same?
Some you can make marks with, some you can’t; some are shiny, some aren’t; some are rough, some are smooth. Head outside and see what you can find. Collect a selection of rocks and stones that are in some way different from each other (it may be a good idea to do this whilst on a walk with your family). Remember to think scientifically, this will mean looking carefully and observing (noticing) all the small differences and similarities between your rocks. Once you have collected you rocks place your rocks on a blank piece of paper. Write words around each of your rocks describing them.

Use the document below 'Describing rcoks' to help with some of the words that you might like to use.


After you have done this, you can find out more information that might help us categorise our rocks on BBC Bitesize:
