Rocks: SciGuide focuses on themes: Formation of Rocks, History of Rocks, and Soil. The lesson plans and resources can easily be adapted for fourth grade. I found this guide helpful because each major theme not only had sample lesson plans, audio clips, sample work and case studies; but it also included additional sources of information.
The SciGuide provides supplemental information in addition to our classroom text. Although lesson plans target middle school students, it can easily be adapted to Elementary standards. Links/suggestions to audio clips support auditorial and visual learners.
Having multiple selections of audio clips imbedded in the SciGuide may increase efficiency. Overall, this SciGuide was well written, planned, and provided an excellent amount of information.
