Jump into the spinning Rock Cycle with this kit from Mini Me Geology. The Rock Cycle Kit has 20 large rock and mineral samples and a full-color PDF eBook that will teach you about the properties of rocks and minerals, how the Rock Cycle works every day throughout our Earth and helps you to learn about geology through activities and puzzles. You will be fascinated by how minerals turn into rocks; rocks turn into different rocks then break down again into particles of sediment ready to begin the cycle again.
Our new and improved box includes secure storage so your samples will stay in their own compartment, foam cushioning, and the name of each sample beneath the foam so you can be sure that you are identifying your samples properly.
