Hot Rocks

ART - Jazz up your stones! First, go on a nature walk for flat rocks. Bake rocks at 225 F for 15 minutes on a foil lined sheet. Make sure your rocks are super dry before you bake them. Remove stones, don't touch them! Use a spatula to slide them onto your work surface. Hold a peeled crayon with the tip touching the stone. You can create swirls, lines, dots, anything you'd like! Experiment with different colors, I kept mine simple - black, white, gold, and silver. SCIENCE - Ask kids if the crayon melting is a physical or chemical change. It's a physical change of matter!
