Science

We are exploring rocks this term and are learning about the three different types of rock and how they are formed.

 

Sedimentary

Metamorphic

Igneous

 

We have performed two experiments: 

 

We investigated what happened if we used sandpaper on a rock, and what happened if we put a rock into water.

 

We then investigated what happened if we pressed wax crayon shavings together, half melted them, and then fully melted them. We thus formed sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous 'crayons'.

 

We have written up our experiments using proper scientific principles: prediction, method, results and conclusion.
