We sorted rocks today according to size.

We sorted rocks today according to size.

Today in class we sorted rocks. That may seems like a simple and pointless task, but it is important.  For our research we needed to separate the rocks into 4 groups:

1. less than 2 mm

2. between 2 and 8 mm

3. Between 8 and 32 mm

4. Greater than 32.

We have ONE rock in our “Greater than 32 mm” container.  We found a piece of glacial chert in the samples today, which was pretty cool!!
