We hope you enjoy this topic on Rocks and Soils. We are going to learn about the main different types of rock; how they are formed and where they are found. We will learn about what type of rocks have fossils in them; how fossils are formed and what we can learn from fossils. We will discover the importance of soil; how it is formed and about the main different types of soil. We have included ideas for practical activities as well as a range of film clips, online activities and paper based tasks.
