Wonder Monday - Whales Learn About Rocks!

Whales learned all about rocks this week when one of their friends wondered, "Where do rocks come from?" and "How are rocks made?"

Whales learned that rock comes from inside the earth! We learned that rocks are "formed with lots of heat inside the earth" and that some rock forms as a result of "water, like streams carrying the pieces of rock to other places." We also learned that "rocks are made from minerals!" Our Whale Wonder Monday teacher had visited the Rice Rock Museum to do some of her research. She took lots of photos, and was able to share her rock collection with us. Whales had lots of questions, and had plenty of additional wonderings of their own!
