Have you ever used any of the following idioms?
- as solid as a rock
- between a rock and a hard place
- be on the rocks
- rock bottom
Rocks are everywhere. Many kids enjoy collecting rocks. I love rocks and I am a grown-up. My daughter loves to pick up rocks when we are traveling to various places. She tries to find unique rocks.
You can find rocks along the side of a quiet country road, by a river stream, in your backyard, or at the local park. You might even want to plan a rock hunting field trip if you get serious about rock collecting. Lots of people collect things–rocks, stamps, spoons, coins, dolls–just to name a few.
So think about teaching a unit on rocks.
