The fourth grade students in Mrs. Prakapas’s class at Roosevelt School in Rahway recently began an Earth Materials science unit. In the first lesson students were introduced to the concept of earth materials and the tools and techniques geologists use by investigating the properties of homemade mock rocks. The students separated them into different ingredients by physically taking them apart, dissolving a part in water, and using evaporation while noting their observations in Earth Materials notebooks.
