If we look closely, rocks tell us the story of their formation. So, grab your notebook and set out on a mini field trip to find out more about how the formation of a rock reflects its physical properties, and what properties architects look for in a building stone.
The activity links geography and science topics and can be expanded into a cross curricular project. You need very few resources; it can be done in an hour and the area is flat with step free access. Everything can be found outside the Storey's Field Centre.
