Each child will build a display box to sort and test 6 (plus a mystery rock) rocks and minerals brought to the Museum from across Connecticut. Each sample will have different properties. Create an array and learn to identify the three different kinds of rocks your samples fit into.

Every student will learn to use and will take home a 10x/30x hand lens magnifier and light.
