This is a great kit for the young rock hound where he/she can learn to test, classify & identify the three types of general rocks. Included in this Rock Science Kit are five rocks in each of the 3 major rock classifications: Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary. Learning is easy with the way each rock is numbered & referenced from the Identification chart, where you find the name & type of each rock. Great classroom source for your next geology lesson, or for use as a science fair project. Anyone will definitely enjoy learning with this hands-on Rock Science Kit! Whether you’re a young student learning geology, or a rock hound by hobby, this is a great way to learn about rocks!
Includes: * Instructions and Rock Identification Key: Provides instruction identifying common rocks. * Rock Specimens: The 15 specimens in this kit are examples of common rocks that have distinct physical characteristics. * Magnifying Lens: This is one of the most important tools for a petrologist, because identifying rocks involves close observation.
Children will learn to look for luster, (the way a mineral reflects light), hardness (measured on the Mohs scale), and color (with a streak test). Affordable, with just enough variety to whet the young geologist’s appetite and an excellent guide to identification activities, including the vocabulary of testing. This starter kit includes 15 numbered specimens that represent the full range of types of minerals, a small magnifier, a nail and tile for testing, and activity guide offering more test ideas for further study, all neatly packed in a sturdy box.
