Lenape Rock Detectives

Students in Paul Mattes and Tara Crowder’s Grade 5 class recently put on their thinking caps and became “rock detectives.” Students took their knowledge from their recent unit on igneous, sedentary, and metamorphic rocks to identify, observe, discuss, and document their various properties. Students used magnifying glasses and pencils to examine and record their observations, using words such as “weathered,” “embedded,” “fossilized,” and “abrasions.” What a bunch of rock stars! #geologyrocks #Lenapescientists #MaroonPride #studentexplorers
