Your task today is to look carefully around for different types of rock.
Look around your home and see if you can find some things that are made from rock - naturally occurring or human- made. Maybe you could look in your garden or local area, when you take some exercise.
Record your findings in your home learning book. Maybe draw a table like this:
|description (drawing?, colour, texture, patterns, shape ...)||Location / use (where was it found? Is it being used for something?)||Do you know its name?||
What type of rock do you think it is?
natural or human nmade
