Attributes of Rocks

3rd Grade

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S3E1.a

Ask questions and analyze data to classify rocks by their physical attributes (color, texture, luster, and hardness) using simple tests.
(Clarification statement: Mohs scale should be studied at this level. Cleavage, streak and the classification of rocks as sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic are studied in sixth grade.)

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S3E1.c

Make observations of the local environment to construct an explanation of how water and/or wind have made changes to soil and/or rocks over time.
(Clarification statement: Examples could include ripples in dirt on a playground and a hole formed under gutters.)
