Year 3 have been really busy geologists this term looking at the three types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock. We have learnt that these are all natural rocks. We have used drama to learn how the rock cycle works which has been very fun. We had a very important task as scientists this week to do an experiment. We were investigating the properties of rocks like whether it was permeable or impermeable, whether the rocks floated or sunk due to their density. The most smelly experiment of them all was to check if they eroded and we used vinegar to see if any changes would happen. The sandstone rock started fizzing up straight away! It was so interesting.
