Oh, yes! Everything goes in cycles, even rocks! Invite your kiddos to discover the rock secrets through these short simple activities and handouts for your interactive science classroom.
Rocks come in various cool colors, shapes, textures, and sizes and are found all around us, but how much do your kiddo really know about them?
Together, you divide in the world of knowledge to explore the three types of rock — igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary — and learn examples of each kind. This set of printables is full of clipart illustrations and realistic rock photos to help your kiddos to engage the information and learn it.
Go through the processes of the rock cycle, and find out how heat, pressure, and erosion all play a part in the process that can transform igneous rock into metamorphic rock...and then back again. They’ll never look at a pebble the same way again!
Guide your students in learning how to differentiate the rock types apart, and see how rocks change from one kind into another! This set of handouts is perfect for interactive Science notebooks.
If you have on you the specimens of igneous rocks (granite, pumice, obsidian), metamorphic rocks (gneiss, marble, schist), and sedimentary rocks (conglomerate, shale, sandstone), then use the printable worksheets to profile these rocks. What a great way to engage the rocks though looking, touching, and smelling.
The set includes the realistic photo poster of granite, pumice, obsidian, gneiss, marble, schist, conglomerate, shale, and sandstone, containing the QR Code linked to Geology.com articles on each rock’s profile. Therefore, QR Code app, and the Internet access is needed to open the links.
