Activities for Studying Rocks and Soil, Grade Level 4-6. Environmental Education Series, Bulletin No. 247-E.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This bulletin is one in a series of environmental education activity guides for grades K-12, developed and field-tested by teachers in the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. Primarily for use in the middle grades four through six, the guides are not intended to constitute complete units in themselves. They are, rather, a compilation of activities considered appropriate for particular environmental studies. In this guide about rocks and the soil, for grades four through six, activities are entitled: Collecting Rock Samples for Observation and Classification, Testing Rocks for Hardness, Classifying Rocks, Observing the Weathering Action of Water on Rocks, Breaking Down Rocks by Freezing, Demonstrating the Effect of Rainfall on Soil, and Observing the Effect of Moving Water on the Earth's Surface. Each activity includes the instructional objective, procedures to follow, and materials required. Teacher notes are added when necessary. A student evaluation sheet concludes the bulletin. Related documents in the series are SE 015 885 through SE 015 888 and SE 015 890 through SE 015 893. (BL)
