Schoolyard Geology

Students learn that a rock's properties tell stories about where it came from and where it has been. The lesson plan illustrates how to make geologic observations and gives background about the important properties of rocks to observe. Students then use those observation skills to describe rocks they find on their own Schoolyard.
