Pupils sort a collection of rocks that are based on one of their characteristics. They create patterns with the rocks, and explain the pattern they made to their classmates. After listening to the book, Everybody Needs a Rock, youngsters are divided into small groups and they explore a collection of rocks together. They utilize worksheets, embedded in the plan, in order to create their rock patterns and test their groupmates to see if they can extend the pattern they've created. The patterns can be based on color, shape, or type of rock.
