In first grade Science, the students learned all about weathering by water, wind, temperature, and chemicals. They did experiments with erosion. The first graders used graham crackers (pretend dirt) and answered questions such as “What happens to rocks?”.
They have been learning so much about rocks. First, the students learned how 3 types of rocks are formed: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Then, they discussed the “properties” of their rocks and learned the difference between rocks and minerals.
