Learning Activities with Rocks

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

I'm a Teacher, Get Me Outside Here has put together a multipy subject post encouraging educators to use rocks as a learning tool for math, art, reading, physical activities, and more!

Small Types turned a pile of rocks into a hands on literacy activity.

 Wise Craft decorated rocks with melted crayon wax.

A List Maker's Life put together a counting, and computation activity, using small rocks painted to look like frogs.

    Have a look.
