Today, I’m stopping by to share some great books to add to your teaching of rocks and minerals. Click on any of the images to view on Amazon. (All links are affiliate links. This helps me cover the costs of running my website.)
I love using this book as a read-aloud for introducing rocks and minerals. I have a minilesson for this book in my Rocks and Minerals pack. Click here to view.
I love this series of books. The illustrations are so beautiful and the author uses great adjectives to describe rocks and then gives details to explain what she means. Check out her other books: A Seed is Sleepy, A Nest is Noisy, An Egg is Quiet, A Butterfly is Patient, and A Beetle is Shy.
This book has a different spin on teaching about rocks. It goes through how one rock could have survived through millions of years and how changes can occur to it. I also have a minilesson for this book in my Rocks and Minerals pack. Click here to view.
