Abstract Make inferences about the geological history of a pebble by observing its characteristics and by utilizing geological principles and concepts. The Every Pebble Tells a Story * activity is an excellent follow-up to the study of mineral and rock identification. However, extensive experience with mineral and rock identification is not required. This activity provides practice in observing and critical thinking and opportunities for sketching and creative writing. Because students select, analyze and write about their own pebble, we have found that the activity is very engaging for students. Additional materials
