New Science Unit – Understanding Earth and Space Systems

We started a new science unit today. We started learning about Rocks and Minerals. The students will be learning about how rocks are formed. They will learn about the rock cycle and build an understanding of how rocks change over time. We will learn about the three types of rocks. In our unit, we will learn how rocks and minerals are different. Through research, we will learn how people use rocks and minerals in different ways. Considering different points of view, we will investigate the environmental impact of our use of rocks and minerals on the planet, other living things and ourselves.
