In this activity students will investigate the scientific view of how the earth’s surface is formed by investigating the contribution of minerals to rock composition and classifying rocks by their process of formation. Students will work in groups of at least 4 students. They will be given an opportunity to select and complete one project from a choice board. Students will also complete a common activity that will require application of their knowledge on rocks to their community. Apart from completing the task students will learn important research skills like using key words and citing all sources of information.
Resources for the project includes QR codes for easier access using handheld devices.
