Fossils and soil
Date: 30th May 2015 @ 12:36pm
Now we have investigated about different rocks, can you answer the following questions..
1. What is the hardest rock in the world?
2. How are igneous rocks formed?
3. How can we investigate how hard a rock is?
Visit Rock Hounds and see what else you can learn or do the quiz on http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/scienceclips/ages/7_8/rocks_soils.shtml or a pictorial quiz on http://resources.hwb.wales.gov.uk/VTC/rocks/eng/Introduction/default.htm.
In the next few weeks we will be learning about fossils and soil. If you have any fossils at home it would be great if you could bring them in to show the class! Also, have a look at the following websites:
