Your task is to conduct some research on the 3 different types of rock. You need to find out their properties (how they look, feel etc.).


If you have access to a garden, with the assistance of an adult, you then need to go on a rock hunt to see what rock types you can find! 


Take lots of photos to send to your teacher. Don't forget to label them to show you have identified them.


If you don't have a garden but access to colouring pens and pencils, have a go at drawing the different types of rocks you've found and label them with their properties.
