Sedimentary Rocks Science Experiment

Are you curious about how sedimentary rocks are formed? With this hands-on science experiment, you can learn all about the fascinating process of sedimentation and create your very own sedimentary food rocks. Get ready to dive into the world of geology and uncover the secrets of these unique rock formations.

Please note that the downloadable lesson is at the bottom of this post!

Step 1: We are starting our rock exploration. Start with the shared reading about rocks. You can follow the shared reading weekly plans as usual (find it in the downloadable file).
