It's easy to start a rock collection. All you need is rocks, and rocks are almost everywhere.

You should look for different kinds of rocks for your rock collection. That means you'll have to get someone to take you to different places.

You can collect rocks that have different colors and different textures. As you collect your rocks, a great thing to do is to try to figure out whether your rock is an igneous rock, a sedimentary rock, or a metamorphic rock.

Each rock is unique and holds clues to the distant past.
