Product Details

The Earth materials kit is capable of affording a near-endless supply of various investigations. The included teacher's guide provides three basic investigations, each with its own questions for students to consider while going exploring the lessons. They are meant to serve as a starting point on which students or teachers can build their own future investigations or lessons.

The initial discoveries focus on exploring the properties of different samples, the examination of soil samples, and the classification of the included samples by which of the three types they are. This makes it perfect for an introduction to Earth sciences and/or geology.

This kit contains twenty samples of different rocks and minerals, each one in packs of 15 pieces. Also included are 100cc's of crushed granite, 30 pieces of halite, and 5 pounds of limestone chips. For the soil investigation, one pound each of soil horizon A and soil horizon C are provided. There are enough samples and styrofoam storage containers for a classroom of 30 students to work in pairs during their investigations.

The rock and mineral samples included with this kit are: andesite, gabbro, obsidian, pumice, limestone, sandstone, shale, amphibolite, gneiss, marble, phyllite, quartzite, slate, and shist. Two types each of basalt and granite are included, as well as samples of rhyolite and rhyolite porphyry, to round out the list of twenty.
