The American Educational 2721 investigating the rock cycle classroom project is used for geological study, for developing student understanding of the metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous processes of the rock cycle. The project has a wood-framed, multi-color teacher’s chart with graphics and mounted specimens for classroom reference. The 2721 has activities for hands-on learning, including 30 student charts on heavy cardstock (reproductions of the teacher’s chart) for marking individual progress as specimens are identified, and 30 specimens of each represented rock to be glued on charts during the activity. (Glue sold separately.) The project has one test kit that includes a streak plate, glass plate, hand lens, magnet, dropper bottle, nail, penny, and hardness scale for identifying rocks. The 2721 also includes the “Scott Resources’ Rocks and Minerals Study Guide” for instructional use. The teacher’s chart measures 24.0 x 18.0 inches (L x H). (L is the horizontal distance from left to right; H is the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point.) The project is suitable for grades 6 to 12 and ages 11 to 18, with many activities and materials appropriate for college use. Science education products are commonly used as educational aids in scientific classrooms and office settings.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
