Product Details

What a value! Students will conduct a series of hands-on experiments using 68 rock specimens! As students observe the distinct characteristics of each type of rock, they will learn about the importance of the rock cycle. Students will also be able to clearly identify the three different rock-forming processes—igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
