Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This activity gets students outside and engages them in the environment. It integrates science, ELA, and technology to post an image with accompanying written reflection on completed work. There is a challenge option for high-level students to add an additional page, locate an appropriate measuring device and use it to measure the heights of their rocks. Then they must arrange them in an order, label them with cm (this could be changed to the US standard inches if desired OR use both and do a comparison) and upload this page with their first one.
