Tuesday 10th January 2012 – Year 4 Investigate Rocks
Year 4 began their new topic for science by investigating different types of rocks from all over the world.
Mrs Rye had bought in her extensive rock collection and gave the children a talk about where the rocks came from in the world and why they were special to her. The children then got to have a look at the collection as well as touch and hold them and whilst they were doing this, they wrote some key questions they wanted to find out about throughout the unit. Some of the children’s questions were “Why do some rocks look different on the outside then they do on the inside?” and “Why are some rocks smooth and other rocks hard?”
The children will be working hard to find out the answers to these questions over the next half term.
