Rockin' with Soil and Rocks! - Leave A Comment if you Dare :)


Yahoo!!! WE are so excited about beginning our next science unit on Rocks and Soil. Seriously!!!

Every year (before NOW) we really did kinda dread, hate, loathe, our unit on rocks and soil.   But guess what????

We just finished creating, what we THINK will be a super, awesome science unit on Rocks and Soil that will not make us want to poke our eyes out! This unit will not only be rigorous and fun for our kiddos but will also be PRETTY DARN CUTE and easy to look at (if I do say so myself)!!

Click any picture to head on over to our tpt store to grab this pack!
This unit is jam packed with Learning Stations for Rocks, Exploration Activities for Soil, 2 Non-Fiction readers, and an Experiment on Soil. The kiddos will have the opportunity to brainstorm what they know, ask questions about things they want to know, hunt for rocks and soil, measure, weigh, compare, write about and read about rocks and soil! We can't wait to get started! Click the images below to grab some FREEBIES :).



When your not busy enjoying this fall weather or watching Survivor or FOOTBALL, check out all the cool things in this pack!!


As always, if you leave us a comment about what you think, you may be the LUCKY WINNER !!
We will give 1 AWAY!!

  4. Rocks are 1 of my least favorite too. But, I have boys this year who love them. I have a few who bring different rocks in every day for me to ooh and ahh over. They would love this! deccles@joink.com

    1. That's awesome Debbie that your kiddos are bringing things into the class to share. We love when we can tell the kiddies go home and still think/talk about school!

  5. I actually really enjoy talking about rocks with my kiddos. They love to bring in rocks and share about them to each other - we've gotten garden variety rocks, polished stones, and some really fun ones that parents/older siblings have. Your unit looks great!

  6. This looks like a great unit! Much more fun and exciting than what we currently have! I think my kiddos would love it. We just finished up our 5 senses and I love how you have incorporated how we use those to study our rocks and soil!

    1. Thanks Cherie!! We also felt science was more difficult than other areas. We decided to create science units so we would have to invest more time learning about fun ways to get us and our students excited about science :).
