Young scholars examine how to take a sample by looking at rocks in the schoolyard. For this sampling lesson, students discuss ways to classify rocks by color, size, and weight. They think about how many rocks would make a good sample of playground rocks. They listen to Byrd Baylor's, Everybody Needs a Rock, which describes the "perfect rock" before they write a journal entry describing a rock that is just right.
