Summary, etc.:
Everyone knows what a rock is, but do you know what a rock is made of? And how it was made? And what it's good for? Rocks and Minerals! With 25 Science Projects for Kids invites kids ages 7 to 10 on a tour of the fascinating world of the geological forces that create and transform rocks, including the life cycle of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks and what they can tell us about the earth. Rocks and Minerals! also explores fossils, and how they come to exist and are discovered. Hands-on STEM activities such as creating crystals, sculpting edible models of the planet, and making stalactite and bake volcanic meringue cookies bring learning to life and require minimal adult supervision while using common household products.
