The Fossils, Minerals and Rocks Loan Kit adopts a learner-lead model that blends year 4 curriculum content and STEM skills into fun team investigations.

Learners work in teams on a series of challenges to conquer the quartz quest, solve the concretion conundrum and unlock the igneous key.

Groups collect data, record observations, and draw conclusions based on evidence and build understanding about how the Earth’s surface changes over time in line with Australian curriculum outcomes.

Year 8 science specialists can easily adapt team tasks to gauge prior knowledge or for revision to scaffold higher learning, with igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks all covered in this kit. <p">Visit QM Loans for more information about learning resources. </p">
