Our Rock Identification Course 1 is designed to be completed in one semester by students who finish three lessons per week. Each lesson in the textbooks contains 2-3 pages of written material, quiz and an elementary science activity.
Our three textbooks on rock identification all have the same format. Igneous Rocks cover the formation and unique characteristics that formed due to volcanic action. The Sedimentary Rocks textbook includes information on the rocks that cover approximately 75% of the Earth’s surface. The Metamorphic Rocks textbook explains how rocks under great pressure turn into new rocks without melting. The Rock Identification Field Guide is not a textbook. Students can carry their field guide in their backpacks while they look for rocks.
2nd Course in series also available.
