Scientific Explorer All About Rocks mini lab kit will teach and let you experiment with 8 different rocks to understand and explore their life cycles through how they form, change or wear away. The Earth is constantly swallowing old rock and bringing new rock to the surface. But what is a rock, anyway? What are rocks made of? Why are there different kinds of rocks? In this kit, you’ll find some of the answers from Olivine, Basalt, Granite, Pumice, Limestone, Slate, Sandstone and Gneiss rocks. You’ll find out how these rocks are made, how they are destroyed and how the pieces are recycled. An 18-page instruction book will provide 17 different safe and fun activities that include smashing one of the toughest rocks in the world with a few light taps of a hammer, creating a rock of your own out of sand and sugar, making carbon dioxide gas bubble out of a rock and much more. The All About Rocks kit will start your new rock collection that includes unique pieces that float on water, found in the Earth’s mantle hundreds of miles deep and very hard rocks that are made from soft mud. Grow beautiful crystals, make a rock in your kitchen and scratch, streak and smash rocks, all in the name of science. This kit includes 8 rocks, an extra piece of granite to play with, a sand bag, rock ID card, magnifying glass and instruction booklet. Recommended for children 8 years of age and older.
