Sedimentary Rock Collection Kit

Sedimentary Rock Collection

Warning Label

 

GeoSafari® Sedimentary Rock Collection, Set of 12

Rocks are formed and identified in one of three categories. These categories are called igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.  Sedimentary rocks are formed at the earth’s surface when wind, water and the weather have a direct effect on them. Through erosion, pieces of sand, soils and little pieces of rocks settle together and form layers and then harden. These layers can be seen in the rock, making it easily identifiable.

Children can become a “Petrologist” (someone who studies rocks) by digging into some serious fun with this fascinating rock collection kit.  The Sedimentary collection features 12 handpicked rock specimens, chosen for color, texture and their beauty. Each kit also includes an educational rock identification chart and activity guide.      Retail Price: $19.99 (price subject to change)
