The children were very interested in rocks during the before and after school program. They started asking questions like, “How are the rocks made?” and “Where do rocks come from?” After observing the children’s curiosity and interest in rocks, we decided to do the rock project. We discussed rocks with children to understand what they know about rocks and asked them what they would like to learn about rocks. The group came up with wonderful ideas, and later we created a learning web to plan out the project and activities for them to explore and answer their questions.
