July: Rockin' Rocks
July 5, 2018
This July, we're going to learn all about rocks! This week, go on a rock hunt, create your own rock, and play with rocks and water in the sensory table. Depending on weather, we will be meeting in either the library's backyard, or in the reading room on the library's main floor.

Slide over as we learn all about sedimentary rocks. We'll play with sand in the sensory table, learn to measure rocks, investigate a sedimentary rock, and create our own edible sedimentary rocks out of Starbursts!

We're moving on to metamorphic rocks this week. We'll sort rocks in the sensory table, investigate a metamorphic rock, and experiment in creating our own edible metamorphic rock out of nut butters, M&M's, and graham crackers! And of course, we will eat the results.

For the last week of July, we'll be heating things up as we learn all about igneous rocks, which form out of lava. We'll learn to weigh rocks, investigate an igneous rock, and then form our own igneous rocks out of chocolate shell sauce.
All programs include a story, music, and movement, as well as a focus on early math and science skills.
