Maple Grove Elementary 4th graders ROCK!

The Rock Hounds, in Mr. Garland’s class, are far from reaching “rock bottom.”  They have been getting to the “core”of earth materials.  They haven’t taken their investigations for “granite” and explored the three main classes of rocks:  Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic.  The student’s have been “gems” while learning how the rock cycle works, why earth materials are important, and have had the opportunity to create their own rocks.  Their main goal is to find the “diamond in the rough,” or the next horrible pun (which they are also studying).

Students from Mr. Patrick Garland’s 4th grade class explore rocks in their science unit.
