We are concluding our rock unit with ROCK DAY here in first grade. Each student brought in a rock and I have provided them with materials to use to create a pet rock. Along with their pet rock students have activities to complete and will use those activities to create an "About Me" poster for their rock. Activities include a birth certificate, and acrostic name poem, a story about their rocks magical powers, comparison activities and even time and money activities to tie in our math objectives for the week. This afternoon we are using food to create each type of rock. FUN FUN day!
