Studying Rocks

The third grade is in the process of studying rocks. Mrs. Chaves brought her class to Mrs. Krese, the junior high science teacher. Mrs. Krese showed the third graders a streak plate and how rocks can show different colors than what you would think on the plate. She also explained some rocks have a smell to them. Each of the third graders brought a rock with them, and they were able to classify their own rocks. The third grade will also write a descriptive paragraph about rocks.
