Plot Summary

Mr. Tate's class is about to learn there's more to rocks than being dirty lumps on the ground. On this field trip they're visiting the rocky ridge mountains to learn about rocks. At first the children think rocks will be boring, but they soon learn that rocks are all around us in ways we might not expect—such as glass and toothpaste!



"Formento and Snow continue their series of nature-meets-numbers books with a foray into geology. . . an information-rich afterword dives into details about rock types, their uses, notable rock formations, and the study of rocks and volcanoes."
