Rock On (rocks and minerals unit)

This has been a crazy week. It rained from Sunday afternoon almost nonstop until Wednesday. I heard that we ended up getting around 7 inches of rain. I kept looking for Noah and his ark. On Thursday, we got out of school an hour early because of impending winter weather. Luckily, we did. It started sleeting and snowing on my drive home. By the time I was home, it was all over the road. Because of the rain, they couldn't lay down the salt mixture so some people I know took 2-3 hours to get home on a normal 20 to 30 minute drive. It was crazy! I was so thankful that I got safely home at a normal time.

The snow was so pretty because it was the big, heavy flakes. Best of all, we got a snow day out of it on Friday. The snow is almost all gone now because it was in the 40s yesterday and is supposed to be around 50 today.

Since I was of yesterday, I worked on a new pack after the request of one of my followers. This is my first attempt at a science pack but I'm really proud of how it turned out. I would love to know what you think.  You can check it out by clicking on any of the images below.
