Rocks talk to the group @WBCL
It is true. The rocks do tell us what the are! I brought a box of 2-3" rocks for the group to use in a variety of shapes--triangles, oblong, round and all kinds of odd ones. At first the kids were a little puzzled then suddenly they GOT IT. The rocks became penguins, butterflies, rabbits, cats and a lot more. we had quite a few ladybugs and other bugs too. It is fun to see how creative they can be. I used the book "Painting animals on rocks" by Lin Wellford to generate ideas for the group. I see several parents painting or making their own projects each week which is just wonderful.
