  • To use vocabulary to draw positive thoughts on rocks
  • To utilize fine motor skills to paint and draw on rocks
  • To understand there are three main types of rocks
    • Igneous: Rocks are those formed from magma or lava which has cooled. Think of them as “fire” rocks.
    • Sedimentary: Rocks are those formed when sediments (sand and pebbles) are pressed or cemented together naturally, through time. Think of them as “layered” rocks.
    • Metamorphic: Rocks are existing rocks which have been changed by high heat and pressure inside the earth over millions of years. Think of them as “recycled” rocks.
