A Look At Rocks

Students write letters to organizations, such as United States Geological Society, to find out more about rocks. Students write about a pretend time they found a magic pebble. Students calculate distances to travel to see various sculptures referred to in the book, i.e. Mount Rushmore and Stone Mountain. Students use information discovered about the Chamber of Commerce to contact the local Chamber and find out if there is a local rock and mineral club.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
