The latest addition to the best-selling Backpack Explorer series (455,000 copies in print) invites kids ages 4 and up to head outside and find, collect, and learn about rocks with this take-along activity book! Backpack Explorer: Rock Hunt is packed with prompts and activities, including: 12 interactive field guide pages introducing rock classifications (color, shape, size, texture); sensory scavenger hunts; hands-on outdoor creative activities; rock experiments; and discovery zone pages with facts about geology, landforms, igneous and metamorphic rocks, gems, fossils, and more. The book includes a real magnifying glass, stickers, and a log for recording rock finds, making it the perfect explorer guide for budding geologists, whether in a backyard, a city park, or a nature preserve.

Also available in this series: Backpack Explorer: Beach Walk and Backpack Explorer: On the Nature Trail.

Recommended by the publisher for ages 4 - 8 years; however, here at nest, we find that older children, and even many adults will find this a nifty little introductory handbook.  The activities are geared towards young elementary children, but the information is a little rich and varied.  

Hardcover, 48 pages.  7.38 x 9.25".
