The learning experiences in the Rocks, Fossils, and Dinosaurs kit supports the New York State Elementary Science Core and its focus on understanding the living environment and physical setting. Through the use of the skills of observing, classifying, collecting data, interpreting data, and manipulating data, students will investigate the properties of rocks, fossils, and dinosaurs. Students will observe and classify rocks and fossils for the basic properties of color, size, shape, and texture. Many of the rocks and fossils in this kit have their origin in New York State. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.
