    This new kit provides an introduction to the three rock categories – igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Specimens are mounted on a 5 ½" x 4 ¼" full-color card, include 6 rocks in each category, and a brief explanation of the 3 types of rock. Each rock is ½ to ¾ inch in size – obsidian, pumice, scoria, rhyolite, granite, gabbro, shale, gypsum, sandstone, dolomite, conglomerate, limestone, slate, marble, schist, quartzite, gneiss, and anthracite. The card is packaged in a resealable zip lock bag. - Donna

       Let’s blow this thing! Probably not the words you want to hear from your children, unless they are talking about this cool science kit. Setting this apart from other kits is the ability to be reused with some easy to find items. The kit itself includes a plastic volcano form, adhesive strips, plaster wrap, acrylic paints, paintbrush, squeeze bottle, funnel and tube, cotton ball, baking soda, red food coloring, foam lava rocks, 2 plastic dinosaurs (for prehistoric authenticity) and illustrated instructions. You will need to provide 2-3 hours and vinegar.

      The step by step, illustrated directions are straightforward and easy to follow. Simply assemble your volcano form and apply the plaster wrap which is like an elastic wrap bandage (yay! less mess). Dry approximately 1 hour. Paint the volcano. Dry. This step may take 2-3 hours depending on how thick the paint was applied. Add ingredients to simulate a true volcanic eruption and squeeze! Lava rocks and food coloring add a bit of authenticity to the experience! Completed volcano measures approximately 10” in height. Personally, I would use an old cookie sheet to place the volcano on to help control the mess or use it outside. The beautiful thing about this kit is that once the volcano has erupted, it can be cleaned up and air dried for repeated use. Encourage children to make changes to the amount of vinegar and baking soda. Keep record(s) of changes and their results, analyze the data, and you have discovered the heart of the scientific method! ~ Deanne

    Rocks may be hard, but the study of them doesn't have to be! Grow sugar crystals. Make sandstone in your kitchen. Weather a rock until it's ready to fall apart. Scratch, streak, and smash them, all in the name of science! When you're done, mount your collection on the display card. Kit includes 8 rocks, sand, a magnifier and a booklet with 17 activities.

    Dig for your own crystals and rocks for some geology fun. This kit includes a 3 ½" x 5" block of plaster-type material with five specimens buried within, a wooden digging tool, and a dusting brush. After excavating your specimens, match them up to the pictures on the box for identification. Your kit may include minerals such as hematite, quartz, or pyrite; or rocks such as jasper, unakite, or tiger's eye. There are sixteen different possible specimens shown.

    Much like the above collection, only with fewer specimens. The 35 or 24 rocks and minerals form a more abbreviated, but still adequate, range of materials for your study of geology or for identification/reference. Instead of buying one of those overpriced "book and skimpy rock collection" combo sets that pervade the market, settle on a good, basic book about rocks and rock-collecting, and use one of these sets as your samples. Unmount the specimens if you prefer - either way, you'll have a much larger and more complete collection for about the same price. Study Guide included.

    One of the coolest things I remember about visiting a local rock and gem museum was the room with the "glowing rocks." Under regular light, they look like any other rock, but turn on a UV light and they glow in beautiful colors pink, green, blue, purple. Now you can see this phenomenon with the Fluorescent Rocks Science Kit by GeoCentral.

    The kit contains 9 rocks (approx. 1/2" to 3/4" each), a guide, magnifier, streak plate and UV pen. Use this kit to learn why rocks glow, test their hardness, and more. ~ Donna

    A good basic set containing 75 rock and mineral samples, unmounted, in a compartmentalized specimen tray. Rocks are number-coded to a list of their names by category with additional information contained in the accompanying Rocks and Minerals Study Guide. This set is used to demonstrate the major rock-forming minerals; the scale of hardness; and recognized physical properties (streak, luster, cleavage, fracture, and specific gravity). It also includes metal and nonmetal ores and igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. Each specimen is of fairly good size (most about 1½" x ¾"). A streak plate, magnet, magnifier, nail, and copper coin are furnished so you can test for properties.

    Volcanoes are always interesting, but even more so when there is something hiding inside! Unearth six different igneous rocks as you chisel your way through this 3-inch volcano replica.

    This art kit by Crayola® ROCKS… literally! Turn science into art class and have some fun along the way. I love the approach this kit takes with getting kids outside to look at the world around them for inspiration. Hunting for rocks is an exciting adventure, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Take your newfound rocks and study their shape, what do you see? An ice cream cone, a flower, or maybe a wing of a butterfly? The included 48-page instruction, color theory and idea book is loaded with whimsical rock transforming ideas that kids will love to create…and parents too. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and include large color photos. Everything you need to get started is included in this kit—18 colors of washable paint, 5 colors of glitter glue, 1 paintbrush, 1 paint palette and 10 pom-poms—except the rocks, so let’s get rock hunting! ~ Emily
