Summary:"This lesson has been designed as an introduction to describing meteorites. Students will become familiar with meteorites by making a connection between the familiar (candy bars) and the unfamiliar (meteorites). This lesson is designed as a comfortable introduction to describing meteorites. Edible """"rocks"""" are used in a scientific context, showing students the importance of observation, teamwork and communication skills. Students will draw and describe the food in everyday terms, pairing their observations with short descriptions that are in geologic """"Field Note"""" style. As the teacher and class review the field notes, appropriate geologic terminology may be substituted by the teacher and subsequently embraced by even very young students."
