This group activity is a fun way to review the rock cycle and learn about types of rocks and minerals. To prepare, gather a variety of rock and mineral specimens to distribute to each group. It is preferable to know what types of rocks and minerals you are using, but not essential. It will also be helpful to have geology reference books and/or online resources available students to examine. I have successfully used this activity with my Grade 12 Environment and Resource Management class, but it would work just as well with younger students.
