This PowerPoint slideshow was created using original images of rocks that I photographed during a recent visit to the south central region of Virgina. I thought it would be a great bell ringer, warm-up, or short review activity.
Specifically, the PowerPoint includes a one-slide review of the three classifications of rocks and seven slides of rocks for students to identify and discuss based on how the rocks were formed and which minerals they contain.
This product is abridged at the moment because geology and science are an interest of mine but certainly not my area of expertise. If reviews are favorable, I plan to add additional images taken during my travels to Peru, Mexico, and Germany.
