In 3SB we have been learning about how to describe rocks.  We have discussed rock colour, texture (how it feels), luster (how shiny it is - or how much light it reflects) and hardness.  To check the hardness of a rock, we tested to see if we could scratch it with our fingernails, a penny or a metal nail.  Can you describe a rock that you have?

One of my rocks is very smooth. And it is black with some orange spots. And it's shape is kind of a square. And it's very similar to wood. My rock is very hard I could've scratched it.
