      Overall I think this is a great starter rock kit. The information cards that correspond with each sample are bright, colorful, and full of interesting facts. I loved how they each had real world examples of how the rocks are used in our everyday life. The only thing I would have liked to seen on the information cards would be what type of rock (sedimentary, igneous, or metamorphic) labeled a little more clearly. In a classroom this kit could be used for several hands on lessons about rocks such as introducing properties, Moh's scale or hardness, and relating back to our everyday world.
