Introduction to Rocks micro-lesson

Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question. 

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Rocks are naturally occurring substances, which means that humans don’t create them at all. In fact, they create themselves. All rocks are made up of different substances called minerals. Here are some different rocks that you might have already seen around you: slate, sandstone, chalk, and finally, quartz. There are lots of different ways that we use rocks every day. We use salt to season our food, clay to make pots and sculptures, cement to build houses and schools, and lead to write with a pencil. I’m sure you’ve seen this one and use it every day. Rocks are very important and really useful. I wonder what ones you could find today.
