This is a great kit for the young rock hound where he/she can learn to test, classify & identify the three types of general rocks. Included in this rock science kit are five rocks in each of the 3 major rock classifications: igneous: igneous rocks are called fire rocks and are formed either under or above ground. Underground, they're formed when the melted rock, called magma, deep within the earth becomes trapped in small pockets. As the magma pockets cool slowly underground, the magma becomes igneous rocks. Igneous rocks are also formed when volcanoes erupt. Metamorphic: metamorphic rocks are rocks that have "morphed" into another kind of rock. These rocks were once igneous or sedimentary rocks. Sedimentary: for thousands, even millions of years, little pieces of earth have been eroded--broken down and worn away by wind & water.

These little bits of our earth are washed downstream where they settle to the bottom of the rivers, lakes, & oceans. Layer after layer of eroded earth is deposited on top of each. These layers are pressed down more and more through time, until the bottom layers slowly turn into rock. Learning is easy with the way each rock is numbered & referenced from the identification chart, where you find the name & type of each rock. Great classroom source for your next geology lesson, or for use as a science fair project. Anyone will definitely enjoy learning with this hands-on rock science kit! whether you're a young student learning geology, or a rock hound by hobby, this is a great way to learn about rocks! includes: * instructions and rock identification key: provides instruction identifying common rocks. * rock specimens: the 15 specimens in this kit are examples of common rocks that have distinct physical characteristics. * magnifying lens: this is one of the most important tools for a petrogolist, because identifying rocks involves close observation. Warning: choking hazard due to small parts. Not for children under 3 years old
