About the Session
How do rocks form and what are they made of? We’ll investigate the rocks beneath our feet and how the different families of rocks form. Introducing the terms “igneous”, “metamorphic” and “sedimentary” we’ll get hands on with rocks from the collection, see where they belong in the rock cycle and have a basic introduction to geological time. Seated talk with some object handling and group work.
