PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students love to learn about rocks, and they are especially thrilled when they are able to recognize a particular rock's name!

This simple dichotomous key (written in student-friendly language) will allow your students to correctly identify the characteristics and names of most common igneous rocks.

It features the following rocks:
Volcanic tuff
Rhyolite
Diorite
Peridotite
Basalt
Scoria
Pumice
Gabbro
Granite
Pegmatite
Obsidian
Vesicular basalt

Included is also a mini lesson plan that shows how I implemented this activity in my class.

My students love the classification activity, and I hope yours will too!

If you decide to purchase this rocks identification key, do not forget to leave me feedback. :-)

Thank you for visiting my store!
