Rock Detectives!

Year 3 became rock detectives as they put a range of rocks to the test!

  • Floatability
  • Permeability
  • Hardness
  • Magnetism
  • Acidity


We recorded our observations through reflective discussions.

Did you know that sedimentary rocks are usually a lot softer than igneous and metamorphic rocks?
