Pros: All the work is done for teachers, who simply need to pick a module and follow the instructions.
Cons: At the time of review, there was very little variety in the available topics.
Bottom Line: These turnkey modules engage students through project-based learning and creativity.
How Can I Teach with This Tool?
Use the projects in Rock by Rock as medium- to long-term learning modules. The topics available at the time of review focus mostly on animal or environment conservation and fit most easily in a science class. They're designed to be implemented over a number of weeks, and if teachers choose to use the whole series of modules, they could fill a whole school year. Modules include an online portion such as reading, research, or watching videos. This could be done as a class, with the teacher leading, or students can progress individually, though younger students will likely need some assistance. There's also a student workbook, which can be printed or downloaded onto students' devices. Unless they want to change something to better fit their class needs, teachers don't need to do any lesson planning. But hands-on offline components sometimes call for materials or other teacher prep. Teachers will want to read through the detailed teacher's guide and materials list to see what they need to prepare. Teachers will also need to create their own tools for assessment.
