Week 6: Hunting and Describing Rocks
A Rock is a Rock is a Rock, Isn’t it?
Backyard Activity: Find and Describe Rocks
Ways to Describe Rocks
Craft: Rock Garden
In your packets, you’ll find a black container, potting soil, and a small succulent plant. Here are the steps to make your rock garden:
1. Pour the potting soil into the black container.
2. Plant your seedling in the soil.
3. Cover the soil with rocks you found. If you have lots of small rocks, you can mix them into the soil before you plant the seedling.
4. Water just a little bit around the plant.
Craft: Hag Rock Necklace
Our librarian Heather’s mom gave us the gift of a big bag of rocks all with small holes in them. These special rocks are also known as hag stones, and can be formed by water erosion or by a small creature called a mollusk. You’ll find one rock and a length of string in your packet. Thread the rock onto the cord, tie a knot, and you’ll have a necklace!
