Lab #10 in my Lab Series
In this lab students must classify rocks as either igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary based on their observable properties.
Includes pre-lab in which students brainstorm the key characteristics of each rock type that they should look for in their rock samples.
In the lab students will:
1. draw a sketch of their rock samples
2. check off whether the rock is igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary
3. Describe one observable characteristic that helped them to identify the rock
