Finish your beautiful painting at home! Remember to use any natural material: coal, chalks, pigments... Here you have some ideas if you need some inspiration... ;-)
Good luck!

Here are some models, but do whatever you like!

Remember to leave a space for your hands. We'll do that in class...

A Journey through Prehistory

Narrator: Hello children!
You´re in for something special today.
Two children, just like you, have lost their way!
They wanted to explore history
But they can't figure out their time machine.

Join me at the theater for a play
And we hope our friends learn something today!

Time Traveller 1: (walking around, lost, looking at map) Where am I? Hello? Is anyone here?
Scientist: Why, hello there! What are you doing here? In the space time continuum! We never see anyone here!
Time Traveller 2: I was playing with my time machine and it broke. Can you help me?
Scientist: Sure! But before I bring you back to the present, we should pass through Prehistory.
Time Traveller 1: What´s that?
Student 1: Prehistory is divided into three periods. The first is Paleolithic. The second is Neolithic. And the third is Bronze and Iron Ages. Prehistory started when people started writing.
Time Traveller 2: Sounds cool! Let´s go!
(Time Traveller and Narrator get into time machine. Push buttons and then start flying through time)
Paleolithic Person 1: I live in the Paleolithic Period. We were nomadic. We hunted and fished to get food.
Paleolithic Person 2: We make tools from stone, wood, and animal bones. Here is a present: a spear for hunting.
(gives spear to student)
Time Traveller 2: Wow. That´s so nice of you! Thanks!
Scientist: Let`s get moving children! We have two more periods to visit.
Neolithic Person 1: Hello! I´m from the Neolithic Period. We cultivated crops and raised animals. We have stopped moving around and live in villages.
Neolithic Person 2: Some of us were artisans. Some of us were farmers. Here is a ceramic pot I made from clay. It´s for you.
(gives pot to student)
Time Traveller 1: That's very generous of you. Many thanks!
Scientist: Time to visit the last part of Prehistory, the Bronze and Iron Ages!
(Get into time machine and travel)
Bronze and Iron Ages Person 1: Welcome to the Bronze and Iron Ages! We melted metal to make tools, jewellry, and weapons.
Bronze and Iron Ages Person 2: We invented the wheel, which made transport easier. Here is a sculpture I made for you. Its a megalith.
(hands sculpture to student)
Time Traveller 2: Wow, it is the biggest sculpture I have ever seen!
Scientist: Friends, we must hurry. The time machine is losing battery!
Time Traveller 1: Thanks for teaching us about Prehistory. We enjoyed meeting your friends.
Time Traveller 2: Time to go back to the present. It will be dinnertime soon.  

Narrator FINAL: Its clear the students learned so much
All while having tons of fun
We hope you learned something too
Because being smart is the best thing you can do!

A good example of a simple mineral is table salt (Yes, salt is a mineral.). The proper mineral name for table salt is halite, and a geologist will often identify it by tasting it. 

Salt is extremely soluble in water. Sea or ocean water is one of the major sources of the world supply of salt.

Individual salt (halite) crystals have a cubic shape

Hey, ready for a project? Well, here you go!

You can create your own sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks! You can use crayons, jelly beans... Let me show you!

1. Simulating the rock cycle with CRAYONS

1. Grate or chop the crayons into small pieces, keeping the colours separate. (PENCIL SHARPENER IS SAFER!)

rock cycle
More weathering

This represents weathering and erosion.
2. Sprinkle a layer of each colour crayon into a small piece of tin foil.

rock cycle
Depositing of (crayon) sediments

This is the laying down of sediments.
Fold up the foil (or put another piece on top) and press down on it very hard.
This simulates the pressure that creates sedimentary rock.
rock cycle
Unwrap your foil and examine your sedimentary rock.
3. Rewrap your squished crayon (sedimentary rock) and heat it by dunking it in very hot water for a few moments, then squish it some more. You could also use other metamorphic crayon-rocks or igneous crayon-rocks to make your metamorphic rock.
rock cycle
This represents heat and extreme pressure inside the Earth, which creates metamorphic rock.
rock cycle
4. Rewrap your heated, squished “metamorphic rock”. This time dunk it in the very hot water for long enough for the crayon to melt completely.  Alternatively, briefly hold your foil packet in a candle flame which will melt your crayon more quickly. (Again, you can also use sedimentary or igneous crayon-rocks to make igneous crayon-rocks.)

rock cycle
Melting (crayon) rocks in hot water to create igneous (crayon) rocks

The melted then cooled crayon represents igneous rock.
rock cycle
We let some of our melted crayons cool slowly, as would happen when magma cools slowly inside the Earth to  create intrusive igneous rocks.  We dunked other melted crayons (in their foil packet) in icy water to represent the fast cooling that takes place when lava cools outside the Earth, creating extrusive igneous rocks.

2. Starburst rocks (SUGUS)

The first rock we made was the SEDIMENTARY ROCK.  The kids cut up their three Starburst candies with scissors.  Some made tiny pieces, others were happy with just cutting them into quarters.  Then, we pressed the "sediments" together to make a sedimentary rock.

We then warmed up our "rocks" in our hands and by blowing on them. It didn't take long for the candy to get warm!  We folded it a few times and we had METAMORPHIC ROCKS!

And the IGNEOUS ROCK, use three Starburst candies and a microwave.


Awesome video that explains how to do it. Enjoy!
