The first thing I thought about when viewing this freebie was my son’s slingshot collection of rocks. My friend’s husband made my son a homemade slingshot and she sowed him a case to hold his rocks out of old pant legs. He loves it so much and so, I thought it would be great to connect his love of collecting rocks for his slingshot into an opportunity for using this lesson. If you have a child who is interested in rocks (or dirt for that matter), for whatever reason, make use of this super cool freebie to teach about rocks and minerals.
Check out these awesome resources that you can use when learning about rocks and studying geology in your homeschool:
