In this six-week series of science lessons from Primary Science Teaching Trust experts, pupils will compare and group together different kinds of rocks, developing their ‘working scientifically’ skills at the same time.
From becoming the owner of a pet rock, to going on a rock hunt, drawing a comic strip and making their own sedimentary rock, there are a variety of cross-curricular ideas here that will engage and excite the children in your class while learning about the physical properties of rock.
