To understand the natural attributes of stone, it is important to have some understanding of stone’s geological background. It is in understanding how stone is formed that we can see its attributes and gain some insight into each stone.   Opportunities for observation Block corners also provide wonderful and varied opportunities for teachers to help the child to become a better learner.
