For a younger child you can set it up so they just work on the first letter of the words. We did something fun with alphabet stamps for my youngest. She got to stamp in the first letter of the word. If they need suggestions of ideas they can use the CVC Word Family Wall Cards or the CVCC Word Family Wall Cards.

Exploring Rocks: Will the Light Shine Through?

We have had so much fun playing with the rocks. We pull out the sensory bin almost every day. We looked at all the different rocks. My oldest made a comment about if light would go through them. I thought this would be a great science experiment about if they would or not.

This is an easy hands on science activity with almost no prep needed for it. We had fun exploring the different rocks and learning that not all first impressions are correct.

We took the rocks from our Rock & Rice Sensory Bin and sorted half of them out and picked them for our experiment. We also reread the books A Rock Can Be .

What you need for this activity: rocks, flashlight, and paper to sort them on.

The first thing they did was take a guess as to if the light would shine through the rock just by looking at it. They had the rocks sorted. I would not let them hold it up to the light to check it. This was fun to see what they thought would and would not work.

Next was the fun part of looking at all the rocks. They got some big surprises by ones they thought the light would not sight through. Here are two examples.

They had tons of fun looking through the rocks! It was exciting to see how different the rocks colors were in the light and what rocks were solid but had small parts where the light would show through. This was an easy and fun science experiment to do!
