Rocks and Minerals

by Janice VanCleave

What are fossils? How do stalactites and stalagmites form? Can rocks melt?

This book includes 20 fun and simple experiments that allow you to discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions about rocks and minerals, plus dozens of additional sugestions for developing your own science fair projects.

See how sedimentary rock is formed using two pillows, a yardstick, and some masking tape. Make models of rocks and minerals with gumdrops, toothpicks, and plastic bags. Learn what carbonate minerals are and how to identify them using a glass jar, some vinegar, and an egg.

All experiments use inexpensive hossehold materials and involve a minimum of preparation and clean up.
