Rock Stars!

Our science topic this half term is all about Rocks and Soils. In our work, we will be be looking at which properties of rocks make them useful for different purposes. This week, have been experimenting to find out whether rocks float or sink, and if they are permeable (let the water soak in/through) or impermeable. Do you know which is the only rock that floats?

You can try the experiments at home (with stones and rocks found locally) or online at: clips/ages/7_8/rocks_soils_fs.shtml
