Fourth Grade Rocks at Morningside

During science, our fourth graders have been learning about different types of rocks, weathering, and erosion. Today as a celebration for doing so well on their science unit assessment, students were allowed to open up their very own geode from Morocco. Inside the geode, they found quartz crystal. We analyzed the rocks, luster, color, hardness, streak, cleavage, and inferred the way minerals could have leaked into their rock. At Morningside, fourth grade always ROCKS, but today it also shined like a crystal geode!
