Classifying Rocks

A well-designed lesson plan on rock classification awaits you. In it, fifth graders are divided into groups. Each group is given a box of rocks which they must sort into two categories. They use the "Rock 'n Roll Rule," in making their classifications. There is an excellent worksheet embedded in the plan that each group uses to help them accurately describe and then sort their rocks.
