Science Olympiad Rock Kit 90 Specimen Set Minerals Comprehensive

 

This premium collection of 90 rocks and minerals includes all of the specimens for a comprehensive study of Rocks and Minerals. This is the best value that we have in rock kits. The Science Olympiad is a High School National Competition in Science. This kit covers what minerals and rocks are, how they are formed, classified and identified along with suggested labs and work sheets. It covers luster, Moh's scale of hardness, streak, specific gravity, cleavage, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and sub-classes along with many other things. This is one of our best sellers to home-schoolers, teachers and just anyone interested in Earth Science. This is a great value for what is included.

It is recommended for grades 6-12. There is a numbered identification key of the specimens. The specimen size is approximately 1-1/4 x 3/4 each in a compartment tray inside a box. This is a wonderful gift for a budding scientist or anyone interested in rocks.
