Rocks and Soils

In Autumn 2, we looked at rocks and soils. We discussed and investigated the following questions:

  • What are rocks used for and why are they chosen for particular purposes? 
  • What are the three different types of rock and how are they formed?
  • Which rocks are most hard wearing?
  • Which rocks are permeable?
  • What are the properties of different soil types and how is soil made?
  • Which soil is the most permeable?
  • What are fossils and how are they formed?


Take a look at some of our work and pictures of investigations we carried out.
