Free Technology for Teachers: K-5 Rocks - Lessons About Fossils and Rocks

Free Technology for Teachers: K-5 Rocks - Lessons About Fossils and Rocks | Teaching the Rock Cycle | Scoop.it

"The American Geosciences Institute produces K-5 GeoSource which is a site that hosts lesson plans and other educational resources for teachers. K-5 GeoSource has a very Web 1.0 look to it, but if you do a little digging you'll find some helpful materials. A few of the resources that I looked at were this free chart about types of rocks (link opens PDF), a science fair project guide, and a short Earth scientist career guide. "
