The Earth is made of rocks and this poster provides a comprehensive overview of what they are and how they are formed. It begins by explaining that rocks are made of minerals and that each type of rock is the result of a specific mixture of minerals subjected to a clearly defined geological process. All posters are laminated and measure 24" X 36".
The bulk of the poster is divided into three sections, one for each type of rock: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. An illustration shows how they are made. It is followed by photographs of a dozen representational specimens. A dramatic photograph shows a natural formation. A bonus section shows and explains some of the more specialized and popular rock forms such as geodes, concretions, agates and thunder balls. This is a great poster for earth science classes, but one also appreciated by rock collectors as it is a helpful resource for identification.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 7 years of age.
My children are always hunting for rocks for their collection and always wondering what the names of the rocks are. With this easy to use poster, I tell them to look at the chart and see if they can find it on their own.
A great companion to Mineral Collection Poster

This poster is the best! It is very sturdy and laminated with a thick film for durability. It will not wear out even if it is moved around a lot. My daughter loves to identfy rocks and minerals and she loves these posters! The photos of the specimins are beautiful. She will use this for years to come.
