The second graders got to write their own blogs posts with their table today. Check out all the fascinating facts they have learned about rocks, minerals, and soil and respond to their questions in the comments!
The green table is writing about weathering. Ice breaks rocks into tiny pieces without moving the rock. Ice wedging is a type of weathering that can break a rock. Our question is what do you think weathering is?
The red table is writing about minerals. Minerals are pure things that can do different things like writing and can be used to make jewelry and can be different colors and shapes. Our question is where do minerals come from?
The purple table is writing about rocks. Rocks are sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous. Some rocks are soft, hard, and rough. Sedimentary rocks are all the underground stuff. Our question is did you know that igneous rocks come from volcanoes?
The yellow table is writing about soil. Soil is made out of clay, sand, and humus. Humus is made out of twigs, branches, and logs. Our question is how can you tell what soil is made of?
The orange table is writing about erosion. Wind, ice, and water are part of erosion and erosion is when wind, ice, and water move a rock and little by little its parts break. Our question is what happens to a rock after erosion?
