During Science class today, students were given several piles of rocks and some magnifying glasses. Their task was to look at them very carefully and decide on some similarities and differences between them. After we discussed these, students came up with some properties of rocks and decided on how we could sort them. Each student chose one property and a way they could sort rocks.
