Rock On - Middle School

Through games, hikes and comparisons students will learn about the rock cycle and how soils are formed. Use a simple key to determine igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks; observe erosion and weathering atop Moose Hill. Samples of soil cores are used to make connections between soil types and plant communities.
Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. This program combines well with Tree-mendous Trees, Habitat Hunt, Tracks and Traces or Settling New England. Because of our large trail system and full-day option, we can serve up to 130 students for many programs. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher-naturalist to 12 to 14 students.
