Geology Rocks!

Our Year 8 Science students have had a great start to Term 2 and have started their unit on Geology. This unit requires to students to investigate the structures and materials that make up Earth and how these materials adapt and change.

In class, the students have been testing different minerals for their identifiable properties. Four different tests were performed on the rocks; streak colour, hardness on the Mohs scale, density and lustre. 

As part of the Science unit, the students have also been completing a series of small practicals, recording their data and utilising their mathematic skills.
