Rock Identification Key

So you have found the coolest rock and it is now your favorite rock and you have named it George.  But what kind of rock it is?  Looks like you need a little help with rock identification!

Well we’ve got you covered double time!  We’ve taken the very popular printable Rock Identification Key from the Meet the Rocks lesson and gone digital.  Just answer the questions below and the magic rock gnomes will pop out an answer for you.

Then you will be able to name your rock George Sandstone or George Anthracite instead of just plain ol’ George the rock.  (A little bonus for you, what would you call this rock in the main photo?)

Let’s get started with rock identification!
