Bloom’s Rocks!

Rocks are going to REVOLUTIONIZE education! Just look how easily rocks cover all levels of Bloom’s!

Flying without a license


I write things on my rocks and it helps me remember. I can also use rocks as eco-friendly flash cards.

Quartz Varieties


Comparing my rock to other rocks demonstrates my understanding. Sometime I categorize all of my rocks.

Skip Rock


I apply what I know about physics and use my kinesthetic intelligence to skip my rock.

Molasse inspection


I like to use conglomerates to help me differentiate between components and analyze the role of different composite pieces.


Sometimes I just sit on a large rock, quietly reflecting on my rock- thinking about how we are all on a large rock and stuff like that.
Greet the Golden Hour


My rock can be used to make many things. I use it as a hammer mostly but I can stack my rocks into cool towers, use it as a canvas, make it into an arrowhead, or use to ground grain.

    60 rocks in 60 seconds! New rock tools to revolutionize your classroom!

    I hereby trademark those two conference presentation titles, including needless exclamation point.

    Pwned you rocks.

    Oh wait, one more,

      I’m never fast enough on copyrighting my great presentation ideas. I would attend 60 rocks in 60 seconds at least twice!

    I wonder how many people in the Ed Tech world would read this and be either completely pissed off, or actually take the time to reflect on their over-puffed cheerleading of their beloved devices? That having been said, my devices are still way better than your crummy old rocks; they come with shiny stickers!

    They are like vampires, there is no reflection.

    Rocks are so portable, they can fit in your pocket. Now learning can happen anytime, anywhere!
