Gem stone investigation


Another Practical Life activity you can make easily with things you have at home.


We picked up a big bag of polished stones from a garage sale. You can also get small polishing tumblers if you fancy polishing the stones you collect on your travels. Rock Tumbler or Hand Polish


Have a magnifying glass at the reay so children can use this to look closely at the different gem stones.

The Montessori Print Shop Rocks classification cards are a great extension for the children who are interested.

Have you been able to use something from your recycling to set up an activity like this?
