This is a rubric for a very creative project for any students studying the rock cycle. They are to find a pet rock and give it the characteristics of a person by referring to it by name and having it go on "adventures" as it experiencing the changes in its life from sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. Students are allowed to choose any way to represent/present the information through video, scrapbook, powerpoint, etc. The possibilities are endless. Students are usually given 3 days in class to research/prepare, then a couple of days for all to present.
