Childrens science experiments and activities in our Rock Cycle book are an introduction to the rock cycle. Our activity book contains 15 mini-lessons. Here is examples of some of the information covered in the activity book. Children learn how salt crystallizes on sticks, sandstone is made from sand-size particles of rocks, caves form when groundwater dissolves rocks and sediments form in layers with the youngest layers on top.
Kids science activities
Our Rock Cycle activity book contains kids science activities that follow the mini-lesson. Examples of some of the fun activities in the book include cooking Granite Rock Cookies, creating a sandstone rocks and testing the hardness of different rocks. Students who do lots of science activities while learning basic science concepts continue to love science as they mature. Science should always be fun and exciting for young students and our kids science activities are designed to keep kids interested in science.
Children's science experiments and activities for early elementary students should always be preceded by short lessons. Lessons often only take one or two minutes to teach and then children spend the rest of their time on an activity.
These are some of the activities in our Rock Cycle book: Salt on a Stick, Granite Rock Cookies, Cave in a Cup, Sedimentary Sandwich, Sandy Rocks and Bubbling Eggshells.
Fun science for kids
Science should always be fun for kids. Students love to explore the outdoors and bring in samples of rocks that they think are unique. In our Rock Cycle activity book they learn how to test the hardness of a rock and create their own rocks using pebbles and glue. Science is fun and exciting both for students and teachers when they combine learning with basic science concepts.
Preschool science activities
Preschool students and those in the early elementary grades love to collect rocks and create their own rock collections. They also love to decorate some of their rocks creating their very own rock art. Homeschool students can collect a river rock each fall prior to the start of school and paint their rock to keep as a keepsake. Over the years students will build their own special rock collection that will show how their interests and abilities have changed over their school years.
